One might say that the veteran and former Indian captain MS Dhoni’s career is at its fag end. But by no means his enthusiasm has died down by any stretch of imagination.
The previous year wasn’t a good one for the wicketkeeper-batsman. But recently in the previously concluded Australia tour, Dhoni scored three back-to-back ODI half-centuries.
As a result his performance won him the Man of the Series Award too. Yesterday in the match against New Zealand at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui, Dhoni played a key role.
The 37-year-old veteran scored 48 runs with the bat and helped his team to post a mammoth target. As a result the visitors won the game comprehensively by 90 runs. Apart from his batting, Dhoni is also known for his expertise behind the stumps.
He resulted in the quick stumping of Kiwi middle-order batsman Ross Taylor. Moreover he also suggested field placements when spinner Kedar Jadhav was bowling.

Along with all these Dhoni was also seen giving suggestions regarding the line and length to bowl to Henry Nicholls. Dhoni is always known for reading the opposition’s minds. More often than not his suggestions work wonders for the team.
Dhoni communicated mostly through his local language Hindi. He does that so the opposition doesn’t get an insight of what he is thinking. Former Indian cricketer turned commentator Sunil Gavaskar narrated what Dhoni said.
His fellow commentator jokingly said that the Kiwis need to learn the language to get into MSD’s mind. He also suggested that they need to learn it before the World Cup, which is scheduled to begin from May 30 in England and Wales.
