Irfan, who played under Dhoni’s leadership in the Indian national team and CSK, applauded the wicketkeeper-batter for his impressive knock on the comeback in IPL. Pathan also revealed his conversation with Dhoni where the CSK player told him about his personal struggles.

“It was impressive, especially because he hasn’t played any amount of cricket. I met him in Taj Lands before he was going to Surat for the camp (CSK’s first camp). I was talking to him and he said, ‘I haven’t played anything, I haven’t done anything’. He was not well one month before then as well, so he was recovering from some illness,” Irfan said on Star Sports.

“He was telling me about his planning, about what he was going to do and how he was going to go about his business. Guys like us, who watch him from the studio want him to finish on a high. And today was a little bit of a sample for that. The kind of innings he played was outstanding. He played against fast bowling really well. Yes, he was struggling at the start against the two mystery spinners, but he managed it really well,” he added. 

CSK will play their next match against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) on March 31 at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai.
