IPL 13: Dhoni prefers gamers who’re good in all departments, says Chahar


Dubai, September 21

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) pacer Deepak Chahar has revealed skipper MS Dhoni prefers gamers who can contribute in all departments, particularly within the shortest format of the sport.

India pacer Chahar was one of many prime performers of CSK with 22 wickets in 17 matches at an financial system price of seven.63. CSK received their IPL opener towards Mumbai Indians by 5 wickets as Chahar bagged two wickets.

“I think Dhoni prefers those who are good in all departments. He likes those who can contribute in batting, bowling and fielding. A bowler can have a bad day but he can change a match by grabbing a good catch or can win the batch with a six or a four,” Chahar informed former India opener Aakash Chopra in his present ‘Aakash Vaani’.

“If you look at our team, we have many players who are good in every department. T20 is a format that requires you to do everything. There are a lot of teams in the IPL which have a strong batting line-up or a strong bowling attack but they remain dependent on a few cricketers. If they do well, they end up winning you matches single-handedly but if they don’t, the team struggles,” Chahar mentioned.

It was former India captain Dhoni who received Chahar into now-defunct Rising Pune Supergiant in IPL 2016 earlier than additionally drafting him into three-time winners CSK.

“Generally, you don’t give the old ball to bowlers who have a pace of 120-125 km/h but when I was playing for RPS and even for CSK I was bowling at around 140 but still he didn’t give me the ball in the death,” Chahar mentioned, throwing gentle on his preliminary journey beneath Dhoni, considered one of many biggest white-ball captains of all time.

“I had asked this to Mahi bhai. He gave me a two-word answer and then I couldn’t say much. So, I asked the bowling coach a couple of times, he also said I should be bowled in the death overs. Finally, I gathered some courage and asked Mahi bhai when he was sitting in a room. He said, ‘I groom players’ and that’s it. He didn’t say anything else,” Chahar added. IANS
