The defending champions posted a video on their official Twitter account of the Gujarat cricketer sharing his first thoughts on taking over from Dhoni while on his way to a practice session. “I’m feeling good. At the same time, I have to fill those big shoes. “Mahi Bhai has already left a significant legacy for me to carry on,” said Jadeja.
“I don’t have to be concerned because he’s here.” So. I will definitely approach him if I have any questions. He’ll be my go-to guy. He was and continues to be. So, no, I’m not too concerned. Thank you so much for your kind words and well-wishes. “Please continue to support us, and thank you,” he added.
