Pietersen was bought by the Pune Supergiants for $514,500 at the recent player auction for the next edition of the tournament set to start in April. Dhoni is confident that the 35-year-old would be a great asset to a team making their debut in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Pietersen was suspended from the England team after the Ashes tour disaster in 2014, over several discipline issues. In 2009, Pietersen was forced to resign as captain after a fallout with coach Peter Moores, who was later sacked.
"Again, you know people are often judged by what comes in the media, but when you actually meet them they are totally different. I don't think there will be any issue with discipline," Dhoni said at an IPL promotional event in Delhi.
"As I said, KP is a fantastic player, someone who is very aggressive and at the same time very expressive on the field. It is good to have him in the side," he said.
The 35-year-old cricketer has played IPL earlier and his big-hitting exploits very well known in the tournament. Dhoni said that experience of Pietersen will help the young fellow in the team.
