According to Kumar, Dhoni put his arm around his shoulders and shared his thoughts on bowling. Dhoni emphasized the importance of trying and learning from each experience. He told Kumar that a bowler must execute their plans and do exactly what they intend.

Mukesh Kumar further stated, “He put his hands around my shoulders and said, ‘I tell this to every bowler that till the time you won’t try, you won’t learn.

Mukesh Kumar expressed his gratitude towards the Delhi Capitals franchise for allowing him to showcase his talent in the IPL. He acknowledged the faith shown in him and the valuable experience gained by playing alongside some of the best players in the world.
