"Bowlers love playing under Mahi bhai because he understands a bowler's strengths and knows how to get the best out of him," Gowtham was quoted as saying by the CSK website.

"The CSK management understands cricket owing to its long association with the game which again reflects in its approach to players  the comforting words and confidence given when things aren't going right," he added."The CSK management understands cricket owing to its long association with the game which again reflects in its approach to players  the comforting words and confidence given when things aren't going right," he added.

Chennai Super Kings all-rounder K Gowtham on Monday said bowlers love playing under Mahendra Singh Dhoni because he knows their strength and how to get the best out of them.

“Bowlers love playing under Mahi bhai because he understands a bowler’s strengths and knows how to get the best out of him,” Gowtham was quoted as saying by the CSK website.

The Karnataka cricketer said it was a dream come true for him to be playing under Dhoni. “I don’t feel any pressure of expectations playing for a champion side like CSK,” Gowtham, who previously played for Punjab Kings, said.

He said what differentiated CSK from most teams in the Indian Premier League was the clarity in their thought process and an organised approach.

“The CSK management understands cricket owing to its long association with the game which again reflects in its approach to players  the comforting words and confidence given when things aren’t going right,” he added.

Gowtham also spoke about the importance of a strong leadership group — like what CSK has — in a team’s success.

“It makes a big difference as it helps a player to express himself. They talk to the player if anything specific is needed or if he’s working on something. When these things are taken care of, it’s much easier for a player to go out and give his best,” the new CSK recruit said.

The CSK players are currently training in Mumbai where they play their first five matches of IPL 2021 starting with a game against Delhi Capitals on April 10.
