'MS Dhoni is the best captain I have played under,' says Piyush Chawla

On being asked if he would rate Gambhir as the best captain he had played under, Piyush Chawla named MS Dhoni as the front-runner on that count. 

"The best I would still say Mahi bhai. You can't really compare two captains to be honest, because everyone has a different way of looking at it. Sometimes, Gauti bhai used to come and tell you that if you do like this, what would be the result."

Piyush Chawla also highlighted the similarity in the captaincy styles of MS Dhoni and Gautam Gambhir, with both of them giving a lot of freedom to the bowler to execute his plans.

"If you see Mahi bhai, he is also like that, he leaves it to you. You can't really compare, there are a lot of things that both do similarly. Both of them leave it to the bowler on what he feels like doing. If that doesn't work out, then they shift to Plan B."

Piyush Chawla was also asked about MS Dhoni's form at the CSK nets before the lockdown-enforced break. The new recruit revealed that the Super Kings' captain was at his devastating best during the camp.

"Honestly speaking, if a cricketer comes after such a long time you feel that he will be a little rusty. But I am sure he was doing something or the other in Ranchi because when he came in the camp, he didn't look rusty at all. He used to come and play 5-6 balls watchfully and then smash all the balls into the crowd."

He also added that MS Dhoni and the other senior players were spending long hours at the nets.
