As we all know Mahendra Singh Dhoni is not India’s captain now, but you can’t take the captain out of him. Despite handing over the baton to Virat Kohli, the 36-year-old has proved time and again that he is the best in the business. Dhoni is often heard advising young players during the match and on the stump microphone, his instructions are often caught.
The same thing took place during the 3rd and final T20 against South Africa in Cape Town when the former India skipper was heard giving instructions to Suresh Raina. He was bowling the 14th over of the South African innings after Axar Patel conceded 16 runs off his first over. He conceded 3 runs in his first three deliveries and just before he bowled the fourth.
Dhoni was heard directing Raina on how to bowl the next delivery; “Don’t bowl fast and straight into the stumps. Don’t bowl fast and straight into the stumps. Don’t bowl fast and straight into the stumps.” Despite Dhoni’s instruction, Raina did exactly the opposite. As a result, Raina was hammered for back-to-back boundaries by South African debutant Christiaan Jonker.
