NEW DELHI: India batsman Sanju Samson has narrated an incident involving former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and mentioned him as India''s greatest captain ever.
He also stated that Dhoni is one-of-a-kind cricketer and whosoever tries to replicate him on the field, usually comes back empty-handed.
"A guy coming from Jharkhand and becoming India's greatest captain ever. I feel very emotional whenever I mention Dhoni," Samson told Rupha Ramani during a video shared by Chennai Super Kings on their Twitter handle.
He also added that it is really difficult to copy everyone's beloved caption. "If you will see him on the field and try to copy him, you will fail. One cannot simply get into his shoes," Sanju said.
Samson then went onto mention a dream featuring Dhoni. He revealed that hasn't told him about this story yet but is going to do so soon.
"I actually saw him in my dream where Mahi bhai was the captain of the team and he was changing the field around. I was standing in the slips and he said ''Sanju wahan ja''," Samson said.
"Then after a couple of days later, he stepped down as captain and I thought how will my dream come true now.
"Then there was a game between India ''A'' and England where they asked him to captain. And once I was standing in the slips and he said ''Sanju udhar ja''.
"I think I should tell him that this happened and it just might bring a smile to his face," he added.
