How does it feel when someone meets their idol? You feel high in the air. And if your idol is MS Dhoni then you will have some happy feelings after meeting him. Such is the case with young pacer and fanboy Ajay Krishna who is making waves in the ongoing Tamil Nadu Premier League.
Ajay Krishna wants some big things with his bowling and when he was selected as a net bowler by the Chennai Super Kings he was asked by MS Dhoni himself to bowl him in the nets. Krishna had been one of CSK’s net bowlers for a few seasons.

“I’ve been waiting so eagerly to meet the legend” – Ajay Krishna
In an exclusive interview with Sportskeeda, Ajay Krishna revealed the first time he met his idol MS Dhoni and how he marveled that his white pair of shoes never got dirty.
“It would be better if I tell you how I met the legend myself, MS Dhoni. He didn’t come to practice for the first few days. So I thought well I’ll meet him soon. I’ve been waiting so eagerly to meet the legend. I was on the ground warming up with my teammates. There were a few other net bowlers as well. We were a group of about 10 or 11. We were warming up together and playing soccer when I saw MS Dhoni coming down with his duffel bag on his shoulder,” Krishna said.
“I remember just watching him walk from the moment he hit the ground until he reached the center pitch (grins). I was like “Okay well, now I’m finally literally standing next to MS Dhoni.‘
“It was a different feeling. It hits you somewhere else. Since I first saw him I would have seen him about 30-40 times. But for the 40th time, the tension was just as high as the first time. That’s a different feeling. It’s out of this world,” he added.
