MS Dhoni likes to sit and have dinner with everyone, we chat till late night: Mohammed Shami
Despite his stature in international cricket, MS Dhoni is a gentle human being. He treats his teammates well. Premier India fast bowler Mohammed Shami, who has played under MS Dhoni, said he used to sit and have dinner with everyone. Beside coming, playing and joking around with his teammates. These are the things Shami misses the most about Dhoni in his absence.
“I played in all the formats under him barring IPL. With regard to guidance, he will always treat his teammates in such a way that you won’t even feel that he is MS Dhoni,” Mohammed Shami said during an Instagram chat with Rohit Juglan.
“He is such a big player. I have a lot of memories about him. Now also we think, Mahi Bhai will come and it will be fun playing.
“One thing I like is he (Dhoni) likes to sit with everyone and have dinner. There are always two-four people with him. We chat till late night, and these are the things that one misses.”
