AP2TG Staff

Putting aside all about all the players, their statistics, and points on the tables, what all matters are hope, people has immense hope on Dhoni, irrespective of his form and scores, people adore him as Maahi and calls him gracefully as Captain Cool. In one form or another, Maahi never lets his people feel down.

We all know that this IPL season has left some bitter marks on Dhoni’s career, from the minimum scores to the belittlement from his own team boards, everything was bit unfair with him, but there’s something that kept Maahi moving, that is the love from his beloved fans.

It must be acknowledged that though he is not the leading the team, he still offers valuable captaincy tips to Steven Smith during crunch situations of the game be it field placements or rotating the bowlers at the right time.

His ways of blocking runs, stumping and clinching off wickets never go away, Dhoni is further bettering with time in the aspects of the game. Being the most experienced player, Captain Cool knows about Kieron Pollard more than anybody else. This time, Dhoni came up with a stellar tactic that he used against the Caribbean Pollard in 2010 season during his stint with Chennai Super Kings against Mumbai Indians and yes! it worked out so good once again.

Dhoni, this time, playing for RPS renounced the trick and suggested Smith the placement of fielders when Kieron Pollard arrived at the crease in 10.3 overs. Adam Zampa was the bowler and he was belted for a six in the very first ball.

Things turned upside down in the last ball of the over, Pollard hit straight to the long-on region which went like a tracer bullet and what happened next is the result of Dhoni’s tactic. Manoj Tiwary who was standing at that area took the catch comfortably in his safe pair of hands which was all part of Dhoni’s gameplan.
