On the occasion of MS Dhoni’s 34th Birthday, we bring to you some of his best comments that have been captured on the Stump Mic, which highlight his sense of humour, his innate understanding and reading of the game as well as his style of leadership. Take a look!
1. The ‘Taarak Mehta’ ball!
During the last day of the third India-Australia match in the most recent series, as Ravindra Jadeja came in to bowl, MS Dhoni was caught on the stump microphone saying to him, “Taarak Mehta waali ball daal”.
‘Taarak Mehta ka Ooltah Chashmah’ is a popular Indian comedy TV show, and the word ‘Ooltah’ means upside down or opposite in Hindi. This means that he was referring to the serial and asking Jadeja to bowl a delivery that spins the other way.
Here’s an audio clip for the same.
