“Dhoni is any bowler’s dream and it will be surreal to play and learn under him. I would love to play under him if I get a chance. But of course, I will give my best in whichever team I go to.”

Dhoni is arguably the most successful IPL captain and it is a dream of every youngster looking to make a mark to play under him.

Sakariya, who got a national call-up following a good IPL season, recalled his time in the Indian dressing-room during the Sri Lankan tour.

“The first time I walked into the Indian dressing room, it was like a kid entering the house of his dreams. I was that kid and was just curiously watching everyone as in how they prepare, their body language and all. I knew that I had to wait for my chance but made sure that I observed and picked up things from senior players. They all were very welcoming,” Sakariya recalled.
