In a rare incident, during India’s innings in the 2nd T20I at Centurion, former skipper MS Dhoni was seen losing his cool. Dhoni, who is heralded for his calmness and composure in the toughest of times was caught off guard after the ‘helicopter’ shotmaker was spotted giving a mouthful to his partner, Manish Pandey, at the other end.
The incident took place on the 1st delivery of 20th over when Manish Pandey hit one towards mid-wicket and ran a single. Soon after the duo completed the run, Pandey started looking at the field rather than looking towards MSD. This made Dhoni bombard Manish with aggressive words as he was aiming for a double and wasn’t too happy when he saw Manish ball-gazing, rather than focusing on his partner in the middle.
But people misinterpreted Dhoni’s words as the lipsync of it roughly translates to an urban slang. The word used by MSD was ‘Bhootni ke’ contrary to what most people think ‘B*********, which is an expletive.
The second T20I fixture at Centurion did not pan out the way the Indians had expected it to. The Virat Kohli-led squad squandered their chance of an early series win a disappointing six wickets loos.
