He further added, “He (Dhoni) understands the game really well, is street-smart and thinks ahead of the game and I feel that’s very important for a captain, especially in T20. That’s what makes him a great skipper.”

Harbhajan played for Mumbai for a complete decade and it did come as a surprise when MI decided not to retain the Indian turbanator going into the upcoming edition of the cash-rich league. Bhajji will be playing for another franchise for the first time and said that he is looking to make new memories with Chennai. He said, “Look forward to exciting times with CSK.”
