Chahal on Indian cricket team: The Indian leg-spinner spoke highly about the bonding between players in the Indian cricket team.
Indian leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has reaped praises on the bonding between players of the Indian cricket team. The 28-year old cricketer chiefly spoke highly of the youngsters can approach any of the senior players like Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.
“This Indian team is a family. The seniors have made sure that none of the young players feel overawed by the names in the dressing room. You can walk up to anybody and tell them what you feel about a certain situation. Be it Kohli bhai, Rohit bhai or MS bhai. They are the elder brothers to the youngsters in the team,” Chahal was quoted as saying to Hindustan Times ahead of the tour of Australia.
Apart from this trio, Chahal named opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan as someone who makes things easy for the rookie players. He was of the opinion that it is these vibes which aid the team to do well.
“In fact, someone like a Shikhar Dhawan also ensures that when new players come in, they feel at home. This is very important because unless you feel confident, you cannot deliver on the field. The reason why this team is succeeding is because of the vibes we share on and off the field,” Chahal added.
The current lot of Indian spinners are often seen receiving continual advises from wicket-keeper Dhoni. In his earlier interviews, Chahal had said that Dhoni is always open for discussions and that he turns to the former captain whenever in trouble.
On being asked about the inputs given by Dhoni, Chahal termed him as a ‘big brother’. “We have been guided by him from behind the stumps and that is there for everyone to see. But his role off the field is just as instrumental. He is the big brother who I can walk up to and speak to about my personal life. He is always there and willing to provide you with the best possible solution.
“When we are cracking a joke or pulling a leg, you will always find him in the thick of things. He isn’t someone who will look to stay away from these moments because after all, these are the memories that shall stay with us forever,” Chahal said of the 37-year old Dhoni.
