MS Dhoni's Advice To Kedar Jadhav In Marathi Is A Pleasant Surprise !

Tell one thing MS Dhoni cannot do!



MS Dhoni can do just about anything - he can finish games, strategies on the field at the drop of a hat, win Indian Premier League trophies. Well, he can also speak in Marathi.

During the fifth and final ODI against New Zealand in Wellington, MS Dhoni was once again seen guiding the bowlers as India defended 252 to clinch the series 4-1. As Rohit Sharma deployed Yuzvendra Chahal and Kedar Jadhav after Mohammed Shami and Hardik Pandya had rocked New Zealand's top order, Dhoni expertly guided the spinners on what to bowl and where to bowl.

MS Dhoni's constant coaching is nothing new. But what took everyone by surprise was his Marathi speaking skills.

Kedar 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.


"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 every time 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.
