“Apart from my wife Anushka, the only person who came to me was none other than MS Dhoni, who supported me through my difficult times and encouraged me. I have a lot of respect for him. I have always respected Lathya a lot that she trusts me so much and I can talk to her freely about anything and any situation.
"Dhoni came to me and had a special conversation with me. Whenever I call Dhoni, 99% he will not pick up the phone because he does not look at the phone. However, he messaged me 2 times asking when are you making a strong comeback. That's where I got the hit and my old form came back.
