Chennai Super Kings opener Devon Conway has revealed interesting chat with MS Dhoni after the latter relinquished his duties ahead of IPL 2022. Dhoni had passed on the baton to ace all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja.
Conway, who was acquired in the IPL 2022 mega auction for INR 1 crore, stated that he was keen to play under the leadership of MS Dhoni.
Revealing his chat with the legendary captain in a video shared by CSK, Devon Conway said:
“I was wanting to play under the great MS as captain. I had a nice little conversation with him. I said, ‘you’re sure you don’t want to captain one more season so I can play under you as captain?’ But he said, ‘no, but I am always going to be around anyways. It was really cool’.”

The Kiwi cricketer, who had a poor start to his IPL career against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), recently spent some quality time MS Dhoni and current skipper Ravindra Jadeja. Devon Conway is elated to know the legends from close quarters.
“A couple of days ago I had lunch and sat in between MS and Jaddu (Ravindra Jadeja). It was really cool just to get to know them better,” he added.
“No aura about them” – Devon Conway on chats with Dhoni, Jadeja
Devon Conway further described MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja as normal, down-to-earth human beings.
“They are just normal men, normal grown guys, just down to earth. No aura about them, easy to get along with and easy to talk to. So it’s been really good to interact with those two legends of Indian cricket,” Conway concluded.
