Former India captain MS Dhoni helped India cross the finishing line in the second ODI against Australia. It is very rare that MS Dhoni loses his cool and that to in the middle of a game. Yesterday a similar incident happened when MS lost it on Khaleel Ahmed. Walking on a pitch with spikes can damage the 22 yards and make it tough for batsmen.
Khaleel came in with drinks when MS Dhoni and Dinesh Karthik was in the middle, Khaleel walked through the pitch to give the drinks to Karthik and thats when the 37-year-old wicket-keeper batsman hurled abuses at Khaleel for walking on the wicket. MS Dhoni also used the word Ch**tya gesturing Khaleel that he could’ve avoided walking on the pitch.
