Such is MS Dhoni's hold on the Indian cricket team that the players are praising him even when he is not there. The latest is Ambati Rayudu.

Rayudu scored a career-best 124* in the opening ODI against Zimbabwe gifting India a 4-run win and he credited MSD for his knock.

The Hyderabad man said that he watches how Dhoni tackles pressure situations and tries to learn from it and the effect is for everyone to see.
