In a recent interview with Chennai Super Kings' bowling coach Lakshmipathy Balaji, he revealed that there was one youngster in the team who was widely admired by many seniors of the team.
According to Balaji, MS Dhoni was quite impressed by Sam Curran's brilliance off the field. He mentioned that Curran would boldy raise his hand and ask questions to senior players.
"Because more than a bowler or a batsman, I have admired him as captaincy material. At CSK, with MS Dhoni and other biggies in the team, he would boldly raise his hand and contribute meaningfully in the team meetings,
"He would debate the plans for different batsmen, even who should bowl when, and was always very eager with cricketing chats. I think Dhoni valued and liked that attitude in Curran and has guided him quietly,
"He is a quick learner and always asks questions but isn’t the type to blindly follow just because I am the bowling coach."
