Hong Kong off-spinner Ehsan Khan revealed that it was a dream come true when he took the wicket of former Indian Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the Asia Cup 2018. After this he also opened up about his future plans in which he said that he will be writing a book and the main chapter of it will be dedicated to Dhoni.
“If Sachin is God then Dhoni is the ‘King of cricket’. I have plans to write a book on my career and when I do, MS Dhoni will be the main chapter. I shall read it to my grandson because life is like a fairy-tale now,” Ehsan Khan told Indian Express.
He also revealed that he is equally sad that he has not got the chance to dismiss Sachin Tendulkar yet.
“In my dreams, I would often think of dismissing Sachin Tendulkar or MS Dhoni. Sachin ko nahi kar paya, dukh hai. Dhoni ka wicket mila…Isliye jhuk key sajda kiya (Couldn’t take the wicket of Sachin but bagged the wicket of Dhoni. This is why I bent down and paid respect),” Ehsan Khan said.
Khan is 33 and he doesn’t have long time left in his career but he said that he will never forget Dhoni’s advice ‘you have a lot of cricket left. Fitness is what you should be looking at’, he said will always be ringing in his ears.
