Kolkata:Promising wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni would be seeking advice from former stumper Nayan Mongia ahead of the Sri Lanka series.

Dhoni, who is in Kolkata to play in a local torunament P Sen Trophy, said that he was looking forward to interacting with some past glovesmen ahead of the coming international 'battles'.

When asked to name some of those he wished to meet, Dhoni said "Nayan Mongia".

The Ranchi-based cricketer also said that he wished to seek tips from Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar to fine tune his batting skills.

On the frequent comparisons drawn between him and Virender Sehwag for their swashbuckling batting, Dhoni said "please don't compare me with Veeru (Sehwag). He is miles ahead of me. He has already proved himself in top flight tournaments. His consistent good showing in international cricket is amazing".
