India’s limited overs wicketkeeper and former captain MS Dhoni is known as ‘Captain Cool’ for a reason. Apart from finishing a number of games for his side and his masterclass behind the wickets, Dhoni is widely regarded for the way he conducts himself on the field.
Even if his side wins the ultimate World Cup or reach to an all time low, Dhoni never lets his emotions get the better of himself. Apart from that he is also at times seen playing fun with his teammates during the time on the field.
Similarly on Tuesday when India took on Afghanistan in the Asia Cup, Dhoni who was seen taking the field as the team’s skipper for the 200th time following Rohit Sharma rest was once again involved in a hilarious on-field incident with Kuldeep Yadav.
Kuldeep Yadav who had come on to bowl an overtook more time than usual in delivering the ball after he was seen setting the field for a long time. Dhoni who was annoyed at this sight gave him a hilarious warning.
“Bowling Karega ya bowler change karien (Will you bowl or should I change the bowler)?,” said Dhoni before Kuldeep started bowling.

The match which happened to be a dead rubber produced a nail-biting finish that saw the game end in a tie. Afghans who chose to bat first scored 252 for 8 after their end of 1st innings. India who then set out to chase the target lost wickets in important intervals to leave them in a fix. Jadeja then rescued the side but fell short of reaching the target as he lost his wicket in the final ball when India needed a run for the victory.
Afghanistan will head home with their heads held high after their impressive showing in this tournament. India, on the other hand, will face Bangladesh in the all-important finals on Friday.
