But what took everyone by surprise was his Marathi speaking skills..#AskStar #askstar sunny sir who will paly no.4? And listen Dhoni’s marathi style.. Kadam (@RealShishupal) February 3, 2019Kedar Jadhav trusts MS Dhoni blindly. It was Dhoni who had suggested Jadhav bowl during the 2017 home series against New Zealand and Jadhav has not looked back since. Essentially, a middle-order batsman, Kedar Jadhav is now a solid all-rounder and a regular partnership breaker. On Sunday, he dismissed Kane Williamson to derail New Zealand’s chase.After India had clinched the series last week, Jadhav had said he would close his eyes and bowl wherever Dhoni wanted him to.”The kind of cricketer I am today is because of MS Dhoni. He has always encouraged me. He had seen me in in Zimbabwe first and in the New Zealand series at home in 2016 he just wanted two overs from me and luckily for me in my second over, I got two wickets and from thereon all the seniors – Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma – have been very encouraging. They give me so much confidence that I don’t feel the pressure of a part-time bowler.advertisement”I must thank Virat and Mahi bhai for letting me bowl exactly when I want t bowl. When a wicket falls, they immediately sneak in my overs so I am very lucky I think,” Jadhav told the broadcasters after the match. “In the past also, I have mentioned everytime I have a question, I look at him and he tells me ‘you have to bowl here.. you have to bowl there.’ And I close my eyes and bowl there and get a wicket,” he said.Also Read | MS Dhoni moves up 3 places in ICC ODI rankings after sensational run in AustraliaAlso Read | Brendon McCullum bows out of Big Bash League, eyes coaching career nextAlso Read | India rise to 2nd in ICC ODI rankings after historic series win vs New ZealandAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for Sports news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?
