Bangladesh young wicket-keeper Nurul Hasan Sohan finally have been able to have a conversation with his idol MS Dhoni to take some wicket-keeping as well as batting tips from the former Indian captain.
“Dhoni is my favorite wicket-keeper. I have waited for a long time to talk to him. I asked him to talk during the last T20 world cup and he said he would talk after the match. But the situation was not favorable after the match as we lost that game,” Sohan said.
He added, “When I asked him today (Wednesday) for time, he said he would talk after the match. Then after the match I have discussed with him about wicket-keeping and batting.”
The 23-year old wicket-keeper batsman sought for tips from the experienced Indian cricketer who is considered as one of the best wicket-keeper of all time.
“I don’t get much opportunity to make any impact with the bat as I usually go to bat at the last moment of the innings. So I asked him how he does. He said, ‘Wickets in the sub-continent are batting friendly and that’s the batsmen who bat at the top can stay on the crease for a long time. So you have to cope with that. But it is necessary to watch out first 5-6 deliveries carefully,” he said
“I told him that I like his keeping and always follow him. I also told him that I have dismissed a batsman during the New Zealand the he does,” Sohan signed off.
