MS Dhoni is almost every budding cricketer’s role model & they never leave any moment to interact with the ‘Thala’ of World cricket. Rising sensation Yashasvi Jaiswal & Ruturaj Gaikwad is no different from them as they made the most of the time they got to interact with MS Dhoni. Sharing their experience about the moments with MS Dhoni, Jasiwal revealed that he literally got goosebumps when he saw him for the first time in IPL 2020.
Jaiswal did ‘Namaste’ to the Thala with respect during their fixture against CSK. On the other hand, Gaikwad stated that he is lucky to spend 2-3 months with Dhoni every year during IPL. For the unversed Gaikwad is a part of the CSK franchise & has learned a lot under his leadership.

The Official Page of the BCCI has shared a short glimpse of both Gaikwad & Jaiswal’s chat ahead of India’s first Test against West Indies starting in Dominica on July 12.
“I don’t have a lot of words to say, as I was watching him from childhood and I said, ‘Namaste’sir, on my first interaction and got goosebumps, and it was a blessing to see him,” said Jaiswal in the video shared by the official Twitter handle of BCCI.
“I am very lucky and fortunate to spend time with him; actually, I see after the match that there are players who go to talk with him and are desperate to get knowledge from him, so I feel lucky in that perspective that I get to spend two-three months with him,” said Ruturaj.
On the other hand, India is all set to face West Indies in two match Tests, three ODIs & five T20Is in their West Indies tour. These two youngsters have been named in India’s squad for India series. It will be interesting to see who will receive their maiden debut cap & don the Indian Jersey for the first time.
