Mahendra Singh Dhoni met the family of Mathisha Pathirana
CSK has reached the final of IPL 2023
New Delhi. In IPL 2023, many young players have looted the gathering with their performance. It also includes 20-year-old Sri Lankan fast bowler Mathisha Pathirana. Mathisha is being called the discovery of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. It was only after watching a viral video of Mathisha that Dhoni decided to connect her with Chennai Super Kings and in this IPL, Mathisha bowled amazingly in the death overs. His action is like Lasith Malinga. For this reason, he is also called Baby Malinga. He has proved to be Dhoni’s trump card this season.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni has always had a special relationship with fellow players. He treats them like family members and once he trusts a player, he does not leave his side. Meanwhile, the family members of 20-year-old Mathisha Pathirana met Dhoni in Chennai, some pictures of which were shared by Mathisha’s sister Vishukha on Instagram.
Sharing the post, Mathisha’s sister Vishuka wrote, “Now we are sure that Malli (Mathisha Pathirana) is in safe hands, when Thala said that you don’t have to worry about Mathisha. He is always with me. This moment was beyond my dreams for me.
Pathirana should not play Test cricket: Dhoni
Dhoni recently also gave an advice to Mathisha Pathirana. He had said that Pathirana is a great death over bowler. His action is such that it is difficult for any batsman to catch him. In such a situation, my advice to him would be that if he wants to keep his international cricket long, then don’t play red-ball cricket i.e. Test match.
