Ravindra Jadeja says all the credit for playing a crucial innings in the third ODI against Australia goes to former India captain and CSK captain MS Dhoni. Jadeja representing CSK in the IPL.



Dhoni is said to be the main reason for his batting improvement. Jadeja spoke to Sony Sport as part of a post-match interview after Team India's victory in the third ODI. "I played with Dhoni Bhai for a long time.

Also playing for CSK. Dhoni always focuses more on registering partnerships. Dhoni used to say that once a batsman is set at the crease, he can play big shots.

I mostly play with Dhoni on very crucial occasions. Would love to play with him. Dhoni always says the same thing. Dhoni follows the principle that runs will come if you try to stay at the crease till the end.

He would tell me the same thing. Dhoni believes he should try to stay at the crease before he can score valuable runs in the last four-five overs.

It is important to register a partnership at a time when primarily key players are losing and struggling. The same situation was encountered in the last ODI against Aussies.

Is happy to have a good partnership with Hardik. Hardik-I thought we would take a chance in the last five overs. We implemented the same and rotated the strike till then. That's part of the game plan, "he said.
