With skipper Rohit Sharma rested, Dhoni was handed the captaincy reins again, and he was at his best
Dubai: MS Dhoni, apart from being a legendary skipper, is known for his brilliant conduct on the field, whether in India's win or loss, the veteran player is seldom seen letting his emotions get the better of him.
Having said that, the wicketkeeper-batsman never hesitates from delivering cheeky remarks from behind the stumps.
Right from doing his mentor duties, guiding bowlers to giving them an earful, Dhoni always remains in action.
The India-Afghanistan match in the Asia Cup witnessed something similar, on Tuesday in Dubai. The contest at Dubai International Cricket Stadium ended in a thrilling tie.
With skipper Rohit Sharma rested, Dhoni was handed the captaincy reins again, and he was at his best.
It was only when Kuldeep Yadav came on to bowl, where the chinaman spinner was setting the field, taking longer than usual, Dhoni clearly annoyed by it, gave the young spinner a hilarious warning which went like:
“Bowling karega ya bowler change karein (Will you bowl or should I change the bowler)?,” said Dhoni before Kuldeep started bowling.

The game was Dhoni's 200th ODI as a captain, with his last captaincy in the series being against New Zealand, becoming only the third player to lead a side in 200 ODIs.
Prior to this, Australia’s Ricky Ponting had led in 230 ODIs while New Zealand’s Stephen Fleming captained 218 ODIs.
