Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper MS Dhoni has got another admirer of his calmness. This time CSK opener Shane Watson heaped praise for the cool-headed skipper.

Watson is one of the key players of Chennai this year. He has been receiving constant advice from Dhoni. He was awe-struck by the calmness of Dhoni. The former Aussie added that it is unbelievable to see him stay so calm in all the situations.

Watson knows how much the adopted son of Tamil Nadu was waiting to come back with CSK. He said, "Playing for CSK means a lot to him (Dhoni)”. 

The all-rounder also revealed that he has not got a lot of chance to talk to MSD off the field at breakfast or any other outings. This is mainly because Dhoni absolutely loves his sleep and does not like compromising on it.

Chennai went for the experienced senior players in the auction instead of youngsters. Watson spoke about the age factor and said the age is just a number. He further added that Dhoni gives him a lot of motivation with the way he is still managing to bat like a youngster. “MS Dhoni’s aura has rubbed off on me as well,” he said.
