“They [Sarfaraz Ahmed and MS Dhoni] are quite different. MS is quiet and reserved. He does most of his things instinctively on the field. Sarafraz is the opposite and almost like Virat [Kohli] in the sense where he is always talking to the players, talking to the bowlers. Always very passionate about how he captains his team and he shows it. There is no right and wrong way, they just have two different styles,” he added.
