New Delhi: Indian cricketer Suresh Raina on Sunday surprised many by stating on a TV show that limited-overs skipper MS Dhoni is the comedian of the team.

“I don't know about others but for me the comedian of our team is MS Dhoni. He is very serious on ground. But once he enters the (dressing) room he says something and everybody starts laughing,” Raina told Anupam Kher on his show.

However, Raina also praised Dhoni. “I have learnt to stay happy in my teams happiness from Dhoni. When Dhoni’s baby was about to be born I asked him why he wasn’t going, he told the country comes first for him.

If you are under pressure and you talk to him, he will calm you down. If you have such inspiration in life then you don’t need any other motivation,” added Raina.

On a lighter note, the 28-year-old revealed that Dhoni was spending his spare time by changing diapers.

Later in the show, Raina also made fun of Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan and stated that the left-handed batsman laughs like a daku (dacoit).
