Indian cricketer Kedar Jadhav

Kedar Mahadev Jadhav (born 26 March 1985) is an Indian cricketer who plays for Maharashtra and the Indian national cricket team. He is a batting all-rounder who bats right-handed and bowls right-arm off-breaks and occasionally keeps wicket.

In the Indian Premier League, he plays for the Chennai Super Kings, having previously played for Delhi Daredevils, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kochi Tuskers Kerala.

Kedar Jadhav on MS Dhoni’s support in his carrier

Team India batsman Kedar Jadhav has reviled how MS Dhoni has helped him shape his career and also named the former skipper as his favourite cricketer.

Jadhav’s comments came during an Instagram Live session on the official handle of Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

“With my potential, I would have played 20 odd matches, but whatever I have played after that, I owe it to MS Dhoni. He has helped me to express my game. He has a calming effect on me. If you are getting that confidence from the captain, there is nothing like that. MS Dhoni is my favourite cricketer,” Jadhav said during the Instagram Live session.

“MS Dhoni has also scolded me in the past, but his scolding is often through his eyes. And when he does that, I know I have to pull up my socks,” he added.

Jadav feels for not able to play with Indian legendary batsman

The 35-year-old then went on to add how he still regrets not being able to play a single match with the legendary Sachin Tendulkar in his lifetime.

“Growing up, my favourite cricketer was Sachin Tendulkar, I regret not playing with him for India. However, when I met MS Dhoni, I thought he would be strict. I have played many matches against him in the IPL, but after meeting him, I do not see any other image coming in my mind when someone asks about my favourite cricketer,” he claimed.

“Salman Khan or MS Dhoni” : Jadav picks

Jadhav, who is an ardent Salman Khan fan, was put in a spot when he was asked to choose one superstar between MS Dhoni and Salman Khan.

To answer this question, Jadhav replied, “Both of them are superstars but because of MS Dhoni. I played for the duration I did and because of him only. I got to meet Salman Bhai, it is difficult to choose one, it is like asking to choose between mother and father.”
