“Dhoni bhai ne Tino Best ko maara tha ek paddle sweep. Maine kaha ‘Dhoni bhai 150kmph daal raha hai’. Unhone bola ‘Usko chiddha raha hun main abhi, yeh mujhe aur dega maarne ke liyee’. Phir uski line hi kharab hogayi. 4 over mein uske chaalis pad gaye.”
(Which roughly translates to: “Dhoni bhai had paddle swept Tino Best. I told him ‘bhai he is bowling at 150 kmph’. He told me ‘I am teasing him, he will give me more lose deliveries’. He (Best) lost his length and conceded 40 in 4 overs”).
