Veteran Indian all-rounder –Irfan Pathan, who went unsold during the IPL Auction 2018, has shared the national dressing room with the limited overs’ great-MS Dhoni many years, as well as, played under his captaincy until 2012 for India and even in the IPL for Chennai Super Kings in 2015.
In 2016 IPL season, Pathan has played for Rising Pune Supergiants led by Australia’s Steve Smith and once again got chance to play along with MSD. In IPL 2017, Pathan represented Gujarat Lions.
The CSK will be returning to the IPL folds with the next 11th edition of the tournament after serving the two-year suspension for spot-fixing, and the Yellow Army once again get a chance to play under one of the most successful India skipper-Dhoni, who is also famous for his cheeky comments behind the stumps.
Recently, Pathan has shared some interesting insights about CSK skipper and revealed his favorite Thalaiva Dhoni moment, as well as, some golden moments with Dhoni during a show -‘Game Plan in your City’ telecasted by Star India, IPL's new broadcaster.
Although, the Baroda all-rounder refused to say too much about Dhoni in front of the national TV, but said it is really amusing listening to all that MS says. He also recalled one instance when Dhoni troubled S Sreesanth the most by saying, “Sree! Teri girlfriend bahar khadi nahi hai. Tu idhar dekh. Mein idhar khada hoon” (‘Concentrate here Sree! Your girlfriend isn’t waiting outside’).
