Afghanistan made their first ICC event appearance in the 2015 Cricket World Cup which was played in Australia and MS Dhoni was captaining the Men in Blue in that tournament.
Najibullah Zadran, who was also a member of the Afghanistan Cricket Team in the tournament, revealed that his idol is the legendary MS Dhoni and that he learned insights into his game from him.
“I regard Dhoni as my idol. No one can finish an innings like he used to do. I learned from him. I spoke to Dhoni at the 2015 World Cup, where he told me to just keep calm and believe in myself even in high-pressure situations. I still believe and follow that advice,” Zadran told MI Emirates in a conversation.
After almost 8 years now, Najibullah Zadran is an integral part of the Afghanistan side. He has represented Afghanistan in 82 ODIs and 86 T20Is, scoring 1974 and 1590 runs respectively so far.
