Vastavam web: England’s limited overs specialist Sam Billings wants to use his stint with Chennai Super Kings in the upcoming Indian Premier League as an opportunity to learn the finer points of the game from none other than Mahendra Singh Dhoni.I’m extremely excited to play in such a great side and learn a lot from all the experienced players that we have. I am very much looking forward to working with (MS) Dhoni, someone whom I have admired as a player for a long time as we play in similar roles ( keeper-bat). So looking forward to learning from him, the 26-year-old Kent captain said in an interview to CSK’s official website.Ultimately there s pressure every time you walk to the crease representing anyone. It s more exciting to be a part of this awesome franchise and play with and against the best players in the world,” he said.
That s why we play the game, to be a part of groups like this and play on the world stage, so I just see it as a hugely exciting and fantastic opportunity to showcase what I can do,” the England cricketer said.Billings can make a big difference to the team as a floater as he is someone who can bat equally well at any position, said Kashi Viswanathan, CEO, Chennai Super Kings.
