Before the match started there was a big surprise waiting for the fans of Indian cricket. The crowd and fans were left shocked after MS Dhoni walked in as captain for this match.
Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan both are rested yesterday, therefore, MS Dhoni returned to lead the Indian side today for the 200th time in the One-Day Internationals, after a long gap of nearly two years.
The match last night between India and Afghanistan was filled with twists and turns; and had many amazing moments as it was the return of our Captain Cool and the stump-mics conversations.
A video has been making rounds on the internet, where MS Dhoni can be heard saying a cheeky one-liner from behind the stumps to Kuldeep Yadav.
Well, what happened was Kuldeep Yadav pressed for a change but Dhoni was adamant to not change the field setting. Kuldeep kept persisting for a change but Dhoni gave him a cheeky reply by saying “Bowling karega ya bowler change karein”.
The reply was caught on stump-mic and soon it created buzz on social media. Here, have a look at the viral video ;

However, this isn’t the first time Kuldeep Yadav heard a cheeky reply from MS Dhoni. Recently, he opened up on a chat show that Dhoni asked him to make some change on the field but the spinner was okay with it. Dhoni lost his cool and screamed at him, “Am I mad who has played 300 matches?” and what followed was a wicket on very next ball. Dhoni then told him, “That’s what I was talking about”.
The match was one of the most interesting and thrilling matches of the series that eventually ended up as a ‘tie’. Chasing the target of 253 runs, India was on-course with a comfortable win needing 1 run in 2 balls. However, Ravindra Jadeja decided to give it a long-off that ended straight in the hands of the fielder, which resulted in a tie.
