Mahendra Singh Dhoni is known as one of the coolest players in the history of cricket. But the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper lost his cool during their Indian Premier League (IPL) match against Rajasthan Royals (RR) at Jaipur on Thursday.
Chasing a 152-run target, Dhoni got out on the third ball of the last over, courtesy a brilliant Ben Stokes yorker, leaving his team eight runs away from victory with three balls to play.
Then, the unthinkable happened. A no-ball confusion ensued as the two umpires seemingly failed to come to an agreement over the height of the fourth ball delivered to Mitchell Santner.
Dhoni, who just took off his pads, stormed on to the field and was seen furiously arguing with Indian umpire Ulhas Gandhe.
Watch it here:
Soon after the incident, fans took to Twitter to share their opinion about the incident.
Here are some reactions:
So, No one had the guts to ask dhoni, why did he entered the ground after getting out. No discussions on that. And you same guys shouted on Ashwin for Mankading', ran full shows on that. Stop these double standards. No one is bigger than the game....— Rahul RK (@RahulRk953) April 11, 2019
i did not expect that from dhoni. no matter what...that was not cool.— Krish (@luvkris2002) April 11, 2019
Needing four runs from the last ball, Stokes bowled a wide. And the reloaded ball was hit for a six by Santner.
CSK won the match by four wickets. Dhoni, who scored 58 off 43 balls, was awarded the man of the match.
CSK have won six matches in seven matches are at the top of the table.
