According to the fast bowler Ishant Sharma, he actually got to know Dhoni after 2013.since Dhoni’s famously calm nature and the way he treats younger players in the side came to light when he interacted with him more during that period.
On Star Sports Show ‘Cricket Connected’ Ishant said, “Initially, my interaction with MS Dhoni was limited, but after 2013, I started talking to him and understanding him, then I got to know how cool he is and how nicely he talks to the youngsters and treats them. He is the same on the field, he has never asked us to not visit him in his room. You can ask (Mohammed) Shami, he goes to his room the most! He has always been like this, and it’s a different moment to enjoy with him when you can learn a lot of things from him, about cricket or life.”
Ishant played immense part of his Test career and his limited-overs career under Dhoni’s captaincy.
