MS Dhoni once again proved that he is an important part of team India. Dhoni’s advice helped Kuldeep Yadav dismiss Trent Boult during the first ODI in Napier. MS Dhoni was seen guiding Kuldeep Yadav from behind the stumps and read Trent Boult very well. Dhoni asked Kuldeep to bowl a googly.
The video of the incident went viral on social media in which Dhoni can be seen saying, “yeh aankh band karke rokega. Dusra walla daal sakta hai isko?” which Translates to: He is going to block the ball blindly, can you ball him the other one?
Kuldeep followed Dhoni’s advice and dismissed Boult for 1 run. Boult failed to read Kuldeep’s length and handed a simple catch to Rohit Sharma at slips.
