How often do you see Mahendra Singh Dhoni losing his calm on cricket field? – Very rarely definitely. In his 15 years International Career, MS Dhoni earned himself the name ‘Captain Cool’ with his unflinching attitude and composure on and off the field.
For a captain, who has achieved so much on the field, MS Dhoni’s way of handling situations has been standout over the years. But this Tuesday, fans witnessed a rare moment, when MS Dhoni was seen losing his cool in the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Defending 167 runs against SRH at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, MS Dhoni was seen shouting at the umpire to affect a possible wide. In the 19th over of the chase, Chennai Super Kings bowler Shardul Thakur bowled a delivery that was clearly outside the tramline. Even though the batsman had slightly moved from his position to play the ball, Umpire was thinking to deem it wide before Mahendra Singh Dhoni shouted from behind the stumps to stop a half starch of arms from umpire.
Surprisingly, the previous ball was also called a wide by the umpire but this time Dhoni’s shout stopped the umpire halfway and Chennai scored a dot ball in tight chase. The incident soon went viral in no time and the netizens didn’t shy away from calling it an influential call.
Even CSK’s spinner Harbhajan Singh find humor in the incident as he shared clip of the moment on his twitter account. While many a man enjoyed the clip, some chose it to taunt Harbhajan Singh for sharing it.

Eventually, Dhoni’s CSK registered their third win of the season against Sunrisers Hyderabad to move at 6th position in the points table. On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad are just above them with just NRR separating them.
CSK took him in IPL when other team throwed him in dust bin. And also he got an opportunity to act in tamil movie. Now he is showing his true colour.

If Betrayal has a human form, it is @harbhajan_singh 💔
I'm not sure what's going on within the CSK team cuz Raina and Bhajji left for unknown reasons but he shouldn't have trolled his own team and his captain. Absolutely cheap sportsmanship. #CSK #WhistlePodu @msdhoni https://t.co/m4ksDzenZs
