A player like Dhoni, he’s got such a big presence in the game: Sam Curran

Sam Curran has been one of the bowlers that skipper MS Dhoni has relied on in CSK. He has shown immense trust in the abilities of Curran as he was tried at the opening slot as well in the 2020 IPL. Dhoni had termed Curran as a complete player and the all-rounder feels that something like this coming from him boosts one’s confidence. He had also added that paying for CSK has helped him learn from the great players and their experiences.

“A player like Dhoni, he’s got such a big presence in the game. He’s achieved so many amazing things. Naturally, you get confidence from that. There’s nothing better for me as a younger player to get put in those scenarios. It’s a great franchise and hopefully, I can contribute more in the coming years.” Curran added.
