It is very rare to see MS Dhoni losing his cool, storming into the field and arguing with the umpire. Yesterday, we got to see the other side of MS Dhoni, an angry and tired one. The cricketing fraternity was quick to criticize Dhoni as he barged onto the field and started arguing with the umpire.
Never seen him like this before!
The umpire is well within his right to overturn a No-Ball or any decision on the field for that matter. Surprised with how Dhoni handled it. It was so unlike Captain Cool #RRvCSK— Hemang Badani (@hemangkbadani) April 11, 2019
Once Dhoni comes to his senses he will understand the mistake he made!
Morning after, @msdhoni himself will be terribly upset with such visuals. Totally out of character. Tense match, frayed nerves, but no excuse for the ugly flare-up. Lucky to have got away with a fine pic.twitter.com/Dyr5Gut8tK— Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) April 12, 2019
Setting a bad example for youngsters!
Unedifying to see @msdhoni lose his cool the way he did in the last over, storming on to the field to demand a no-ball. Even if right in his assessment of the delivery, wrong to be so demonstrative IMO— Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) April 11, 2019
Umpire's decision is final!
While @msdhoni is right in saying what he is, he isn’t right in entering the ground and arguing his case.— Boria Majumdar (@BoriaMajumdar) April 11, 2019
The umpire did signal a no ball.
Even a fan like Sanjay couldn't defend Dhoni!
Have always been a big Dhoni admirer, but he was clearly out of line walking out like that. Lucky to get away with just a small fine. #VIVOIPL— Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) April 12, 2019
But some of them came forward to defend their former captain!
He avoided the Dhoni incident completely!
A former captain's opinion!
This is not a good look for the game ... No place at all for a Captain to storm onto the pitch from the Dugout ... !! #IPL— Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) April 11, 2019
Now, what would we name this movie?!
That last over was like an old Hindi film promo. It has action, drama, adventure....— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) April 11, 2019
Aakash Chopra's 2 cents on the topic!
Umpiring standards have been pretty low in this #IPL and that was a no-ball given and reversed. Enough to feel crossed and miffed. But the opposition captain has no right to walk out on the pitch after being dismissed. Dhoni set a wrong precedent tonight. #RRvCSK #IPL— Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) April 11, 2019
