Y Chahal on MS Dhoni
“He (MS Dhoni) is the only person; unke saamne aate hi meri bolti bandh ho jaati hai (I am tongue-tied in front of him). I don’t speak a lot irrespective of the kind of mood I am in. I just sit still and reply only if Mahi bhai asks something. Otherwise, I just keep quiet,” Y Chahal told on ‘The Ranveer Show’.
“We were playing a T20 match against South Africa in Centurion. For the first time, I was hit for 64 runs in four overs. (Heinrich) Klaasen was hammering me, so he asked me whether I would bowl round the wicket. I said okay, but then Klaasen hit me for a six,” said Y Chahal.
“I was walking back when Mahi bhai came to me and told me, ‘Aaj tere din nahi hai, koi baat nahi’ (Today is not your day, it’s okay). But he told me that the five balls that I have left, I should try and not concede a boundary on those as that will help the team. From that experience, I realized that even if you have an off day, you can still support the team,“ he added.
