Ever since the inception, former Indian skipper MS Dhoni is well known for his hilarious puns on his team mates. Despite being the captain cool, Dhoni also possesses some interesting qualities like urging his players on the field in his sarcastic and most unique way.
He doesn’t give orders, nor doesn’t make anything much tough, he has his own way of saying things, be it about the match, telling his players to take their places, taking actions or anything. His cool is the trait that often makes him an absolute standout from the rest.
This wittiest angle of the then captain can be acknowledged when the words from the stump mike are revealed. After a long time, a glimpse of his razor-sharp wit was seen in Friday’s ODI match of India vs West Indies, where he left everybody in splits with his hilarious quips from behind the wickets.
Not just humorous, his so-called dialects are always been productive though, his relationship with Ashwin from behind the stumps can be considered as the best example, as it, in particular, has yielded innumerable wickets for India. In India’s third ODI against the Windies.
Check out his wittiest lines spelled on the third match against West Indies:
1) Virat Kohli wanted to use DRS but Dhoni knew it was missing, he said, “Leg stump ke bahar ja rahi hai. Review kharab ho jayega aur kuch nahin. (It is missing leg stump. We will waste one review and nothing else.)”
2) And when Dhoni took a playful jibe at Ravichandran Ashwin, by saying “Ball dekho, Ash. Kahan dhyaan hai? (Look at the ball, Ashwin. Where are you lost?)” Ashwin had been so busy appealing that he missed an easy run-out chance.
3) When Kuldeep Yadav had been bowling short assuming Rovman Powell will step out. Dhoni had words of wisdom for the youngster, saying, “Yeh (Rovman Powell) aage nahin badega. Andar se hi marega. (He will not step out. He will look to hit big from behind the crease.)”
It seems that the popular commentator Harsha Bhogle has been enjoying the words of Dhoni, he was later quoted saying, “if he could, he would just raise the volume of stump mic and hear MS Dhoni narrate the entire scene from behind the stumps. It just is proof of the legendary MS Dhoni’s contagious wit and humor, and that he’s as good with his words as he is with the bat and the keeping gloves.
