Listen to the news
Nehra said, what do you think, he never got hurt, humiliated or angry? But he knew to hide it. This is his second nature. He had great respect for all the senior players. He respected everyone and so he got respect. Utilizing all resources was his strength and making players like Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja has been one of his biggest contributions.
Nehra said, I first bowled MS in the final of the Duleep Trophy before Dhoni went to Pakistan in 2004. At that time, I was bowling at a speed of 140 kilometers per hour and despite one of his shots being misplayed, the ball went for six runs across the boundary line. His strength surprised me.
Improvements in wicketkeeping
Ashish said, “If you ask me about his wicketkeeping, he was certainly not close to Syed Kirmani, Nayan Mongia or Kiran More. But over time, he got better and when he finished his career, he became the fastest-handed keeper due to his brains and agility.
Don't like gossip
Nehra says that when Dhoni arrived in the Indian dressing room in the 2004–05 season, he was a man confined to himself and apologized for a mistake. Five of us (Sachin Tendulkar, Harbhajan Singh, Yuvraj Singh, Jack (Zaheer Khan) and myself had dinner together most of the time during the tour. I don't remember Dhoni ever coming with us. He himself Limited. But you can enter Mahi's room at any time, but yes, he did not want to hear any external gossip or evil behind anyone.
