“My son has brought me luck. My dream to play under my hero, Dhoni will come true now. I’ve seen that those who play under him feel that they can perform better and feel secure about their spot in the team. I want to know what it is about him that makes the players feel that way. I’m very excited. I will try to come back into the Indian team by doing well for CSK,” Dube told Times of India.
