“I feel very confident playing with MS Dhoni”, says Kedar Jadhav
Indian batsman Kedar Jadhav said that he felt high on confidence when playing along with MS Dhoni.
Kedar Jadhav credited MS Dhoni for the match-winning partnership they had in the run chase. “Every time I bat with him [Dhoni] and I spend time with him, I learn a lot,” Jadhav said. “I can’t put it out in words.
Every time I see Mahi bhai, I feel very confident. That sort of aura is like, that you see him and feel that ‘I will deliver today’. He has the knack of getting the best out of every player and that’s what everybody loves about him.
“The thing is, me and Mahi bhai have plans in our heads,” Jadhav said. “We bat according to that plan. And the plan was to not give him [Zampa] a wicket because he was looking like one bowler who can take wickets. We need to give respect to him if he is bowling well. Obviously, he bowled well, bowled in the right areas with good speeds and good variations, so we had to give that respect.”
On his bowling display, Kedar said that he kept things simple by bowling stump to stump. “I guess I’m just lucky to get wickets. I keep it stump to stump. You will find it difficult, my ball doesn’t bounce that much. It comes from two or three different angles.”
