The Pakistan pacer said he was “honored” to receive a signed CSK jersey from MS Dhoni.
Chennai Super Kings Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has admirers of all around the fraternity of cricket. Rauf had produced an impressive game in the clash against India in the T20 World Cup. Bowling at a decent 6.25 strike rate, Rauf posted 1/25 numbers in four overs, taking the all-important wicket from Hardin Panda. A 10 wicket win in the game in Dubai. As India was eliminated in the tournament’s group stage, Pakistan suffered a semi-final loss to future champions Australia.
Rauf finished as the team’s second best wicket taker in the edition. The Pakistan fast pitcher is currently competing in the Big Bash League in Australia, where he represents the Melbourne Stars. Dhoti, meanwhile, is set to return to action in the Indian Premier League this year. The CSK captain was one of four players shortlisted by the franchise ahead of this year’s mega auction, which takes place in February.
