As Kuldeep said that he was fine with the current field placemnt, Dhoni erupted in anger and said, “Kya main pagal hu yaha pe, maine 300 ODI khela hu’ which roughly means ‘Do you think I’m mad? I’ve played 300 ODIs’.
As it turned out, Kuldeep who had been very expensive his his first three overs, picked up 3 wickets in his last over.
