It was a special moment for all the MS Dhoni fans as he led India after 2 years, playing his 200th ODI as captain. After India entered the final of Asia Cup, captain Rohit Sharma opted to leave India’s last Super Four clash against Afghanistan on Tuesday.
In the absence of Rohit, the former Indian skipper took charge and guess what we saw a totally different side of Dhoni in the match.
Well, the 37-year-old legendary wicket-keeper who is popular for his cool and calm attitude on the field showcased his “angry” side on the field when he snapped at Kuldeep Yadav during Afghanistan’s innings.
In the match, the 23-year-old bowler asked MS Dhoni for a field change but Dhoni refused to make the changes and said Yadav to carry on with his bowling.
While Kuldeep tried to argue, Dhoni snapped back at the chinaman bowler and said, “Bowling karega ya bowler change karein? (Will you bowl or should we change the bowler?).”
After hearing Dhoni’s words, Kuldeep turned silent and went on to carry the attack.
Meanwhile, Kuldeep Yadav ended with the figures of 38/2 in his quota of 10 overs as Mohammad Nabi’s explosive 50 and Mohammad Shahzad’s impressive ton took Afghanistan to 252/8 in 50 overs.
Chasing the score, India lost KL Rahul and Ambati Rayudu’s 110-run opening stand. With Rashid Khan dismissing Ravindra Jadeja in the last over, Indian cricket team lost all their wickets at the score for 252, ending the match in a tie.
Meanwhile, Twitter started to make memes on Dhoni’s cheeky remark which was recorded on the stump mic.
