New Delhi, July 9 India leg-spinner Karn Sharma said there is no cricketer who gives feedback to his teammates better than MS Dhoni in world cricket, heaping rich praise on the World Cup-winning former captain's leadership skills. Karn Sharma, who made his international debut under MS Dhoni's captaincy in 2014, recalled Dhoni's advice that helped him outsmart England batsman Joe Root. Karn pointed out that India great helps bowlers with his inputs from behind the wickets. "I still remember when I made my T20 debut against England, he (Dhoni) told me 'isko first ball googly daal' (bowl a googly first up). I was new and Joe Root was batting. He said 'Ye pakka tere ko reverse sweep maarega, to pehla ball googly daal' (he will definitely play reverse sweep, so bowl a googly)," Karn told sports presenter Yash Kashikar on his Instagram live show 'Say Yash to Sports'. "Even when we practice in Chennai, he gives a lot of valuable advice from behind the stumps. In fact, I have not seen a cricketer in my career who gives better feedback than MS Dhoni." Karn Sharma, who has played under both MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma, said both are calm and collective captains. The legspinner said Rohit has learnt the trick of the trade from Dhoni after having played under him for quite a few years for India. Notably, Rohit overtook Dhoni to become the most successful captain in the Indian Premier League (IPL) when he led Mumbai Indians.
