In an unprecedented event, former Indian captain MS Dhoni, revered around the world for keeping his calm, abused batting partner Manish Pandey in the second T20I on Wednesday. This incident has since then been a treat for meme community.

Widely regarded as Captain Cool, Dhoni spearheaded the most successful reign of Indian Cricket by guiding the team to 2007 T20 World Cup, 2011 ODI World Cup and 2013 Champions Trophy.

Having transformed his game over the years, MS Dhoni is no longer the swashbuckling batsman who relied only on big hits to build an innings. In the twilight of his international career, Dhoni puts rotating strike and smashing the ball at an equal pedestal. Manish Pandey and MS Dhoni had an unbeaten 98 runs partnership.

In the last over of their innings, Pandey hit one towards mid-wicket and ran for a single. Dhoni wasn’t amused by this action as he believed they could’ve taken two, and let Pandey know that ball watching at this stage is futile and he should look at his partner instead. He then subsequently dispatched the next ball over the ropes for six.

Even though it’s an out of the ordinary incident, it’s worth noting the fighting spirit of Dhoni is still very much alive at the age of 36, and the complacency still doesn’t exist in his books.
