It is his ability to stay calm and composed even in the toughest of situations which has earned former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni the nickname – “Captain Cool”. Dhoni is the epitome of calmness on the cricket field.
Dhoni, the only captain to hold all three ICC trophies, has powered India home in many crunch situations with a monk-like approach.
Only a few would disagree that except for something exceptional, it is rare for Dhoni to express himself on the field.
However, Dhoni’s current teammate and young left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav has revealed a side of Dhoni which has remained unknown to most of his fans.
During a talk show, “What the Duck”, Kuldeep narrated an incident when Dhoni lost his cool on the young bowler.
The story dates back to India’s second T20I against Sri Lanka in Indore last year. It was Rohit Sharma who was captaining the side in the absence of regular skipper Virat Kohli.
During Kuldeep 3rd or 4th over, Dhoni asked the bowler to make specific changes in the field. In his reply, Kuldeep dismissed Dhoni’s suggestions and said he was fine with the current setup.
