Parag posted the photo on the Internet in Parag in 2019 after the premiere of IPL. In an interview shared on IPL’s official website about the viral photo, Parag said he grew up with Dhoni being horrible and was six or seven years old when he took up the post.
“I was six or seven years old when that photo was taken. I’ve been idolizing Dhoni since I was 6-7 years old and now Bowling is up to him, putting the pitch against him, even though he’s battling behind him, it’s just surreal,” Parage told Rajasthan teammate Jaydev Unadkat .
