When it comes to conducting oneself on the field, there are very individuals in the game better than MS Dhoni. Apart from his scarcely-believable exploits on the field, the legendary skipper has made a name for himself for the way he conducts himself.
Whether his team wins the World Cup or suffer a humiliating loss, Dhoni is rarely seen letting his emotions get the better of him. But then again, the veteran keeper-batsman never shies away from delivering cheeky remarks from behind the wickets. From guiding bowlers to giving them an earful, Dhoni always remains in action.
Well, something similar was seen on Tuesday when India were playing against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup. With regular skipper Rohit Sharma rested, Dhoni led the team, much to everyone’s delight. And he did not take long to turn back the clock.
The incident occurred when Kuldeep Yadav came to bowl. The chinaman spinner was setting the field and was taking longer than usual. Annoyed by it, Dhoni gave the young spinner a hilarious warning.
“Bowling karega ya bowler change karien (Will you bowl or should I change the bowler)?,” said Dhoni before Kuldeep started bowling.
Here is a clip showing the hilarious incident:

Meanwhile, the game was Dhoni’s 200th ODI as India captain. He had last captained India in the ODI series against New Zealand. He thus became only the third player to lead a side in 200 ODIs. Ricky Ponting led Australia (ICC) in 230 ODIs from 2002-2012 while New Zealand’s Stephen Fleming led in 218 ODIs from 1997-2007.
Coming to the game, Afghanistan rode on century from Mohammad Shahzad to post a challenging 252 for 8.
