MS Dhoni has been one of the mainstays of the Indian side for over a decade now. The former captain continues to motivate others in the team and has a big influence on the opposition too. Time and again, the youngsters have credited Dhoni for helping them with his insights on and off the field.
In the ongoing limited-overs series against South Africa, Dhoni has helped the Indian bowlers a great deal. He has often been heard chipping in with his suggestions from behind the wickets.
And now, in the first T20I at the Wanderers, Dhoni was seen being the mastermind for the dismissal of South Africa’s T20 specialist David Miller.
The incident took place in the 7th over of the second innings. Hardik Pandya bowled a bouncer which sailed over David Miller’s head. Dhoni wasn’t pleased by the delivery and suggested Pandya to bowl the delivery in good length area.
Pandya adhered to what the former skipper said and did exactly the same. He bowled one on the good length. Miller danced down the track and ended up top-edging the ball in the air. Shikhar Dhawan pocketed the catch and the southpaw had to head back to the pavilion.
