After helping Team India to a six-wicket victory over Australia, Kedar Jadhav on Saturday, on Chahal TV, said that he blindly follows former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, adding that so far it has helped him a lot.
With the win over Australia in the first ODI of the five-match One Day International series, Team India have taken a lead of 1-0.
“I follow Dhoni blindly and I become successful. I have told him as well that until he is standing in front of me, I am not scared of anything, I am not scared of any target,” said Jadhav. The Chennai Super Kings’ cricketer also shared his views with leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal that there’s “no better dream than playing alongside Dhoni.”
“It’s always an honour to play with MS Dhoni. I’ve been watching him play on TV since my childhood and now I have got an opportunity to win matches with him. There’s no better dream than this,” Jadhav added.
Left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav also explained how he picked Australian batter Peter Handscomb’s wicket in the first ODI.
“The wicket was very slow, so I thought I’ll bowl two quicker deliveries, then I bowled a slower one and that ball drifted well and beat the batsman. It was a special ball,” Kuldeep said.
The chinaman spinner also said that he often asks Jadhav to teach him how to bowl from a height of 4-4.5 feet, but the all-rounder has asked him to stick to his basics.
“I keep asking Jadhav to teach me how to bowl from a height of 4-4.5 feet but he keeps telling me that I shouldn’t try it since it’s not my strength. He tells me that I am one of the main bowlers and that’s why I should stick to my basics,” Kuldeep added.
