Former Indian captain and current Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni is one of the coolest persons on the field. He rarely shows his emotions and always remain composed. That is why the entire cricketing fraternity calls by by the name of ‘Captain Cool’.
However the 37-year-old veteran couldn’t remain calm in the game against Kings XI Punjab at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. The incident happened in the 19th over when KXIP were batting.
The match was evenly poised by then as they needed 38 runs from 12 balls, which is achievable in modern-day cricket. Dhoni handed youngster Deepak Chahar the responsibility with to bowl a fine over.
However Chahar started off on a worst note possible. He bowled a waist-high no-ball which batsman Sarfaraz Khan dispatched for a four. The next ball was a free-hit where Chahar again went for a waist-high no-ball where the batsman took a double.
Dhoni was seen furiously going towards the youngster and didn’t hesitate to give him a public scolding. Dhoni vented his frustration on the youngster and Chahar meekly tried to explain his poor deliveries.
Nonetheless the scolding did its magic as Chahar came back strongly and bowled a perfect yorker. He even took the wicket of David Miller in that over and ended KXIP’s hopes. After conceding 8 runs off those two no-balls, Chahar gave only 5 runs from the rest of the over and turned it into exceptional.
