MS Dhoni caught on the Stump Mic!

MS Dhoni caught on the Stump Mic!

3. “Pujara ko udhar taali bajaane ke liye nahi rakhaa!”

In a Test match between India and New Zealand in 2014, left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja was bowling to BJ Watling, who had already crossed the century mark. Dhoni had placed Cheteshwar Pujara at 2nd slip and wanted Jadeja to bowl full length just outside the off stump in order to get the batsman to drive and then hopefully, nick it towards the slips.

However, Jadeja continued to bowl wide outside off at a loose length, which prompted MS to say, “Pujara ko udhar taali bajaane ke liye nahi rakhaa hai!”. It means that Jadeja should look where Pujara was standing and bowl accordingly, and that Dhoni had kept Pujara there to catch the ball and not just clap his hands!
