India spinner Yuzvendra Chahal was recently on the chat show Breakfast With Champions, where he spilled some beans about his international debut as well as experience with MS Dhoni. Take a look below.

On international selection

I had a good IPL season and never knew the team was going to be announced. When the names were revealed on the BCCI website, I could believe my eyes and kept looking it for half an hour. Seeing my name I cried a lot. The day I wore the jersey, I can’t even describe in words.

Early interaction with Dhoni

I received the ODI cap from MS Dhoni. He is a legend and the first time I met him I was not even able to talk in front of him. When I met him for the first time in Zimbabwe I used called him Mahi Sir. After a while, he called me over and said, ‘Mahi, Dhoni, Mahendra Singh Dhoni or Bhai, Call me whatever you want but not sir.

In praise of Virat

Virat bhaiya inspires me a lot. Both on and off the field, he helps me a lot. He told me that my life has changed and/ I need to stay fit. Now I know that fitness is important. Even I am feeling better after working out.
