MS Dhoni sets field for Bangladesh: The Indian wicket-keeper batsman stopped the bowler to set the field for Bangladesh yesterday.
Former India captain and current wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni is known for playing multiple roles for his team. From batting and wicket-keeping to playing the advisory role for his captain and bowlers, one usually finds Dhoni in the midst of things more often than now.
However, what Dhoni did yesterday not only added another facet to his line of work but also came as a source of amazement for his bountiful fans.
It all happened during the 40th over of the Indian innings when Sabbir Rahman was bowling to Dhoni. The 37-year old cricketer stopped the bowler in his run-up and pointed towards the fielder on the leg-side who was perhaps moving from mid-wicket to square leg.
Citing the fielder changing his position or may be standing at an unusual position while the bowler was about to bowl, Dhoni pointed it out to Rahman. Eventually, the fielder was moved to a conventional square leg position.

As far as Dhoni’s innings was concerned, it brought back memories of him attacking the opposition bowlers at will. Coming in to bat at No. 6 in the 22nd over, Dhoni scored an exceptional 113 (78) with the help of eight fours and seven sixes to propel India to 359/7 in 50 overs.
The veteran batsman was involved in a 164-run partnership for the fifth wicket alongside Lokesh Rahul. With the innings, Dhoni has continued his rich returns in the year 2019. The Indian team management and fans of Dhoni will be wanting for him to continue in the same manner throughout the tournament.
