India opener KL Rahul talked about MS Dhoni after win over Sri Lanka in the first T20I in Cuttack on Wednesday (December 20).
The former Indian skipper scored a vital unbeaten 39 off just 22 balls to help India post a commanding 180 on the board at the Barabati Stadium.
“I think he is in great shape, he almost killed me as soon as he came into bat,” Rahul chuckled while referring to the powerful shot down the ground from Dhoni that almost hit the non-striker. “I don’t know what form you are talking about but every time I switch on the TV or every time I have played with him, he always seems to get the runs. The last time we were here in Cuttack, he got a massive hundred against England and he has been contributing really well in every game.
“He is somebody we all look up to, he is somebody who is a match-winner and he will always be one,” Rahul added.
