Its a no secret that MS Dhoni and other Indian players share a brotherly camaraderie. The former was the captain of the Indian team for close to 9 years and many players made their debuts under him. It is a well known fact that Dhoni has been supportive of every young player be it of the national team of of the franchise cricket.
This is exactly the reason why Dhoni is loved so much by this generation of Indian players. Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya and Mohammad Shami played their maiden games while Dhoni was the captain. Moreover each one of them put Dhoni in high regard and have called the former Indian wicket keeper as an elder brother of sorts.
Few days ago it was swing bowler Bhuvaneshwar Kumar who sang praises for Dhoni. He had said – “Everyone knows what kind of a player he is. But I posted to explain what kind of human being he is. He always helps others. If you speak to anybody about Dhoni, they will all tell you about how helpful he is. He always gives guidance to all the youngsters”.

Now another Indian player has come out and has showered compliments on MS Dhoni. The stylish batsman who has doubled up recently as a wicket keeper was giving an interview to Forbes India. In one of the question he was asked about what comes to mind when he hears the word ‘Captain’.
To this he replied – “The minute anyone says ‘captain’, the first name that comes into anybody’s mind from our generation, our era, will be MS Dhoni,” said KL Rahul. “We have all played a lot of cricket under him. Yes, he has won a lot of big tournaments and done so many amazing things for the country.
However the biggest achievement any captain can have is to have the respect of your teammates and any of us will happily take a bullet for him without a second thought. One thing I have learnt from him is how humble he has been through ups and down; how he has always put his country over everything else is just unbelievable”.
