Afghanistan leg spinner Rashid Khan has revealed MS Dhoni’s advice. The former Indian skipper had told Rashid Khan that he shouldn’t get unnecessarily aggressive while fielding as he could hurt himself. Rashid Khan represents Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the IPL while Dhoni is the captain of Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

The CSK skipper is known for interacting with youngsters and giving them valuable advice. Dhoni’s presence behind the wickets played a significant role in the Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav’s rise in the stocks.

In an interaction on the YouTube show ‘Cricast’, Rashid Khan admitted that his interactions with Dhoni have been very helpful.

“After our matches, the discussions that I have with him has helped me. Last time he told me, ‘You have to be careful while fielding, you slide, throw the ball when it is not necessary, you get aggressive. Because there is only one Rashid Khan and people want to see you more, what will happen if you get injured? Keep this in mind, I tell (Ravindra) Jadeja the same thing’.”

Rashid Khan then also said that he wished to play in the same team as MS Dhoni. According to him, the former India wicketkeeper is the best person to explain things to a bowler.

“I have dream that I play under MS Dhoni because the experience playing with him, under him is very important. For a bowler, the role of wicketkeeper is very important and I don’t think there is anyone better than him to explain you things.”

Rohit Sharma has a lot of time to play his strokes: Rashid Khan

Apart from MS Dhoni, the cricketer from Afghanistan also spoke about Rohit Sharma. He said that the opener times the ball really well and is naturally gifted, who relies on his timing more than hitting the ball hard.

“He has got a lot of time. I have seen very few players who have a lot of time. It is natural for some players to have more time. The way he pulls even if it is 145 plus or 150 kmph, the way he hits, it seems the ball is 125 or 130 kmph. He doesn’t hit too many powerful shots. He believes in his timing,” said Rashid Khan.
