The 26-years old arm fast pacer Mukesh Chaudhary from Chennai Super Kings stated that MS Dhoni told them to believe in his abilities after he failed to perform well in the first few games of IPL 2022.

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) bought the left-arm pacer at a base price of INR 20 lakh. He was Maharashtra’s highest wicket taker in the 2021-22 edition of Vijay Hazare Trophy. The player failed to do well in the first couple of matches in the Indian Premier League. However, he made a strong comeback and ended up picking around 16 wickets in the 13 matches.  Meanwhile, he also said that he never thought that he would play for the four-time Indian Premier League winners, Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

He made a statement and added, “In my first two matches, I couldn’t perform to my potential. So, I used to talk to him (Dhoni) every day and also in between matches. Dhoni told me to believe in my abilities. Rutu (Ruturaj) is my friend… so he was always there with me, he supported me and gave me the confidence saying, ‘You have everything, you just have to believe in yourself’ because for every player it happens, where they go through this phase."

Mukesh further talked about the impact of Dhoni and Gaikwad on his cricketing career since he joined the Chennai Super Kings (CSK). He said that his good friend and CSK opener, Gaikwad, always supported him and gave him confidence.

“In my first two matches, I couldn’t perform to my potential. So, I used to talk to him (Dhoni) every day and also in between matches. Dhoni told me to believe in my abilities. Rutu (Ruturaj) is my friend… so he was always there with me, he supported me and gave me the confidence saying, ‘You have everything, you just have to believe in yourself because for every player it happens, where they go through this phase’,” said Choudhary.

“After the Mumbai (Indians) game, I gained confidence and continued to bowl with that confidence,” he highlighted.
