Australian batsman Steve Smith on Thursday praised former Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper MS Dhoni and said there is no one in India better than the 42-year-old. Speaking to Star Sports, Smith said that no one reads a cricket match like MS Dhoni. The Australian batsman added that it was ‘great’ to share the field with the former India skipper. “There is no one better in India to stand behind the stumps than MS Dhoni. The way he understands the game and the angles of the game is second to none. So look, he was a great person to play with. really enjoyed his company both on and off the field,” said Smith. Smith also called Dhoni a ‘chilled’ man. The Australian revealed that the 42-year-old helped him a lot with cricket.

“He’s such an easy-going guy, obviously extremely busy with a lot of things outside the game, but extremely relaxed and a great person. There were a lot of occasions where MS was fantastic. You know, I really enjoyed playing with him .I enjoyed it. He guided him too. He definitely helped me,” he added.

Ahead of the IPL 2024 season opener against Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) at the Chepauk Stadium, the Chennai-based franchise announced that Ruturaj Gaikwad would take over the 42-year-old’s responsibilities.

The announcement marked the end of Dhoni’s long reign at the helm of CSK, during which he led Chennai to five IPL crowns.

CSK had a great start to the IPL 2024 season as they registered back-to-back wins in their opening matches after beating Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) and Gujarat Titans (GT).

The Chennai-based franchise are currently at the top of the IPL 2024 standings with four points to their name.
