Khaleel Ahmed, the left-arm fast bowler, had performed brilliantly in the Asia Cup of 2018.
In an interview, he said that he had a dream of playing under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and, when Dhoni captained a match in Asia Cup 2018, his dream came true.
When Dhoni left the captaincy, he thought that his dream of playing under the great man would never come true.
But in an Asian Cup match against Afghanistan, captain Rohit Sharma and vice-captain Shikhar Dhawan were at rest, allowing Dhoni to captain.
Khaleel is very happy that his dream came true and he said that it was his destiny that Dhoni captained for the one match. It was the second international match for Khaleel Ahmed and Dhoni gave him the chance to bowl in first over.
Khaleel also talked about his aim, saying he wants to be the main baller of the team. He said that he wants to be the baller whose name strikes first in the Captain’s mind whenever there is a need to clear out the opposite side.
Another thing that relates well with this match is, as a captain, it was the 200th match for MS Dhoni. The result of this interesting match was a tie but this match made Khaleel’s dream became reality.
Khaleel also got emotional when India won the Asia Cup 2018 Final against Bangladesh and MS Dhoni, the man of hearts, requested the captain Rohit Sharma to let the new player in the team hold the Asia Cup 2018 trophy.
This gesture by MS Dhoni won many hearts and was very much appreciated by all.
MS Dhoni always gives chance to the young players to be in the limelight whenever his team won the match. MS Dhoni is one of the best captains of all the times.
