India’s former skipper MS Dhoni gave invaluable tips to Kedar Jadhav when he came out to bowl. Dhoni suggested the off-spinner to keep the deep mid-wicket when he was bowling to Henry Nicholls. The stumper said, “Come on Boys, Ek kr or lenge abhi, Bhai aise daalega to rkh le tu. (Come on boys, we will get one more wicket. Hey Brother, if you bowl like this then it is better a keep a fielder there.

Thus, Dhoni was seen sharing a laugh with Kedar Jadhav. The Maharashtra spinner also agreed with Dhoni and decided to take wicketkeeper advice which has always helps him. In fact, Dhoni’s words are always gold as he has all the experience under his belt.

“Every time I have a question I look at him and see what he has to say. I close my eyes and listen to Mahi bhai as to where to bowl and it works. The cricketer I am today is all because of MS Dhoni,” Kedar Jadhav said after India’s win of 90 runs in the second ODI against New Zealand.

MS Dhoni also affected a fine stumping on the bowling of Kedar Jadhav to get rid of Ross Taylor. Dhoni was quick to whip off the bails and Taylor’s right foot was in the air when Dhoni got rid of the bails.

Meanwhile, MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav added the finishing touches to the Indian innings. Dhoni continued his sublime form with the bat as he scored his runs from the get-go.

Thus, India posted 324 runs. Subsequently, Indian bowlers came to the party to skittle out the hosts for 234 runs to go 2-0 up in the series.
