MS Dhoni mocks Yuzvendra Chahal: The Indian wicket-keeper batsman was heard mocking the leg-spinner on the stump mic.
Other than his batting, captaincy records and wicket-keeping skills, former India captain and current wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni is also known for his cheeky comments from behind the wickets.
Irrespective of the situation, Dhoni has many times been heard on the stumps mic as passing witty comments to his players. The latest incident of the same was registered during the fifth ODI of the ongoing India’s tour of New Zealand at Wellington.
It happened during one of India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal’s over when the bowler was taking a lot of time to set his field. Citing Chahal’s dissatisfaction with the fielding placement, Dhoni came up with another hilarious remark from behind the wickets.
“Karne de usko. Muralitharan se zyada fielding se usko fark padta hai (Let him do it. The field placements matter to him more than they did to Muralitharan),” Dhoni was heard as saying on the stump mic to one of Indian fielders.

The video which has gone viral across social media platforms also witnesses chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav laughing at the veteran cricketer’s comment.
Having won the match by 35 runs, India ended up winning the series 4-1. India’s series victory was only the second time when they defeated New Zealand in New Zealand. Having also won the ODI series in Australia, it was remarkable of the tourists to register consecutive over series victories.
Talking of Dhoni, he has been in stellar form this year. Coming on the back of a worst year in ODIs (in terms of number of runs scored), Dhoni’s form must have come as a respite for the team management.
