“He was a young captain, I’d say. It was in 2007 World Cup that he captained India and won. But If anything wasn’t working, then he’d ask them to give a chance to the field he sets,” Murali told India off-spinner R Ashwin in his show DRS with Ash.

Murali played under Dhoni at CSK, and revealed that the latter would clap for the bowler even if good balls were hit for a six.

“He (Dhoni) will clap if a good ball gets hit for a six. He’ll tell the bowler that it’s a good ball, and it doesn’t matter if the batsman has hit you for a six. Batsmen too have the talent to hit,” said Murali.

“So with that kind of appreciations, he’ll call you alone, to tell you what’s needed instead of doing it in public because of those qualities, he has been so successful,” added Murali.

Murali also added that he always took the advice of seniors after becoming the captain.

“He has the ability to think calmly, it’s because of these plus points that he became such a good leader. Even when he was young, he’d listen to advice (from seniors). He’ll listen to people and then he’ll make the decision at the end of the day. That’s how he used to captain.

“But more than that, he wouldn’t care about how players bat in the IPL. But he wants the players who can win the match for you. That’s how he went about his business,” Murali added.
