Krunal Pandya gave mankading warning to MS Dhoni during the match between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. MS Dhoni once again proved that his reflexes and his sharp mind is still one of the best in the game as he was always in the crease. The incident took place during the 14th over when Krunal was bowling to Kedar Jadhav and MS Dhoni was at non-striker’s end.
Impressed by Dhoni’s reflexes, commentator Sanjay Manjrekar said, “Right instincts for Dhoni. The bat was inside, the ball was in the scene. He does most things right. Just out of instincts, with Dhoni very rarely will you see him do something that is incorrect.”
