Dhoni walks before the umpire’s decision: MS Dhoni put on display spirit of cricket in the best possible manner against Hong Kong.
During the fourth match of the ongoing Asia Cup between Hong Kong and India at Dubai, former India captain and current wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni showed as to why he is one of the most respected players around in cricket across the globe.
Dhoni, who came in to bat at No. 5 in the 41st over when Shikhar Dhawan was dismissed after scoring his 14th ODI century, might not have contributed much with the bat. However, with the way he behaved on the field, it was enough for him to impress and inspire the millions of people watching this match all-round the world.
On the fourth delivery of the 42nd over, Dhoni had tried to nudge an Ehsan Khan delivery towards the off-side. Staying leg-side whilst his attempt to play the shot, Dhoni ended up edging the ball which was taken by wicket-keeper Scott McKechnie.
As the bowler started to appeal for the dismissal in front of the umpire, Dhoni was seen walking back to the pavilion, something which he does very often is he has edged the ball.
Given his character and reputation, Dhoni is someone who seldom takes things for granted on the field or doesn’t comply with the rules of the game. With the bat in hand, if he is aware of the fact that he has edged the ball, he walks on most occasions.
It is these attributes of Dhoni which make the individual that he is. Apart from a legendary player, Dhoni is also considered as a true gentleman of the game.
With him getting out on 0 (3), he might have let his fans down. But his loyal fans would be expecting him to stand tall on the big occasion tomorrow against Pakistan tomorrow.
