Mahi Bhai Is Like Family: Rishabh Pant
New Delhi: India wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant said MS Dhoni is “like family” adding he likes to spend time and learn from him.
“Mahi bhai is like family. Our relationship is very good. I have learnt a lot of things from him in my cricketing journey. He always says (I should) focus on processes and the controllables. That has really helped me. You take out the extra things from your mind. His family, too, is great. Sakshi bhabhi, Ziva, uncle, aunty; they are such a loving family. I love spending time with him,” Pant told The Week in an interview.
Pant revealed that he would talk to Dhoni and Rohit Sharma during tough times in 2019-20 when he was going through a rough patch.
“It was a hard time and I shut out everyone. It was difficult for me to go to many people. I only believed in myself; I wanted to prove myself to the world. I did not want to think negative thoughts. I was waiting for my chance. I was talking to Rohit bhai and Mahi Dhoni bhai a little bit. But mostly I kept believing in myself. It was obviously very challenging. That was a low phase in my life.”
