“Obviously, MS Dhoni back with the team feels amazing because we have played under him and we have looked towards him as a mentor even when he was our captain,” Rahul said in a clubhouse session for Red Bull.

“We loved having him in the dressing room when he was the captain, we loved the calmness. We have all looked up to him to help us out, to have him here is amazing. This gives us a sense of calmness; I have enjoyed spending time with him in the first two to three days and it has been a lot of fun. Looking forward to chewing his brain about cricket, captaincy and all things cricket,” he added.

The 29-year-old is certain Dhoni can still give Indian players a stiff competition with his fitness. He also hoped to see the former Indian skipper in the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League.

“None of us are sure that IPL 2021 final was his last game. I do not think, I would love to see MS Dhoni play for a lot more years if he could.

“I think Dhoni can give any of us stiff competition, he definitely is a guy who can hit the ball furthest, he is very strong and he is good between the wickets. He looks the fittest, it is good fun to have him,” Rahul added.

Dhoni, who won three ICC tournaments under his captaincy, will try to help India to break their jinx of the ICC tournaments and will be guiding the team to win their first ICC title since the Champions Trophy 2013.
