MS Dhoni is one of the most loved and respected cricketer around the world. Apart from his brilliant captaincy and batting skills, his humble personality and cool as cucumber nature has earned him huge respect and love from his millions of fans, who treat him as their demigod. He is coolest and the calmest person on the field.
It is a very rare sight when we see Dhoni loosing his cool, the way he soaks in pressure and support the other teammates is something that is not everyone’s cup of tea. There have been rare occasions when Dhoni has lost his cool, the latest one being on Manish Pandey during the T20I against South Africa.
Recently, Kuldeep Yadav, the young bowler of Indian cricket team, was a guest on the talk show ‘What the duck?’ which is hosted by Vikram Sathaye. In the chat show, Kuldeep Yadav narrated an incident when MS Dhoni lost his cool and lashed out on him.
The incident took place in the second T20 international that was played between India and Sri Lanka at Indore, the same game where Rohit Sharma scored the fastest century in mere 35 balls. The incident happened when Kuldeep Yadav was delivering his over and Dhoni suggested him to remove the cover fielder, push him deep and bring the point fielder up. Kuldeep Yadav, however, had different opinion, he told Dhoni that he is fine with the current setup.
Well, Dhoni lost his cool and yelled at him, saying ”Kya main pagal hu yaha pe, maine 300 ODI khela hu’ which translates to ‘Do you think I’m mad? I’ve played 300 ODIs’,” revealed Kuldeep Yadav.
Following the order of Dhoni, the changes were made and as Dhoni suggested it worked. Kuldeep Yadav got a wicket, which means Dhoni’s suggestion worked for Kuldeep Yadav. Kuldeep Yadav lauded Dhoni’s cricketing mind and also thanked him for his inputs on the field.
