New Delhi: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni), popularly known as “Captain Cool”, has been seen less frequently in the field. But in 2019, during an IPL match played against the Rajasthan Royals, CSK captain Dhoni was furious and went straight to the ground and confronted the referee. This rarely happened, when the audience was considered a super cool captain.
The case is for IPL 2019
In fact, in 2019 there was an exciting match between RR and CSK and on the last ball Dhoni’s team won the match by 4 wickets. But in the meantime, something happened in the last one and Captain Dhoni lost his temper. After Mahendra Singh Dhoni sacked on the third ball from the last, Chennai Super Kings needed 8 runs in 3 balls to win.
It was all the controversy
After the dismissal of Captain Dhoni, Mitchell Santner came to bat. In the last one, Ben Stokes, bowler for the Rajasthan Royals, was bowling. Ben Stokes threw the fourth ball of his at Mitchell Santner, on which he ran and completed 2 points. But due to the height of the ball, the referee did not indicate any ball, but the ruling was withdrawn after seeing no response from the leg referee.
Dhoni clashed with the referees on the pitch
This referee’s decision became the reason for Dhoni’s anger. The referee first indicated that there was no ball and then called the ball “legal”. With that, Ravindra Jadeja, who was beating with Santner on the pitch, first faced the referee, then Dhoni sitting in the “dug” objected to the referee’s decision from there. There was a strange atmosphere in the ground and Dhoni had come straight from the canoe to the middle of the field. Here he told the leg umpire that this ball had not been given. Meanwhile, a heated debate took place on the pitch between the referees and Dhoni. However, despite Dhoni’s objection, the referee upheld his decision and Dhoni had to leave the pitch.
Dhoni was fined
Chennai captain Dhoni had to pay compensation for his mistake. Dhoni was fined 50% of match fees for breaking the code of conduct. Dhoni fans were not expected to behave like this, but he may have given such a reaction under the pressure of winning the game. In the television reruns it was clear that Stokes’ ball was not a ball, but the referee had erred in this case. Dhoni’s attitude surprised former players who commented on the game. From Akash Chopra to all players commenting, Dhoni’s behavior has been misunderstood. Because the referee’s mistake on the pitch is nothing new, but opposing it or showing anger is considered contrary to the spirit of the game.
… and Chennai won
Santner then scored two runs for CSK on the fifth ball. Four points were needed to win on the last ball, here the next ball went wide. Now three points were needed on the last ball: Sentner hit his last ball for six and gave the victory to his team. Previously, Chennai had again stopped the Royals for 151 races at seven wickets while doing superb bowling. Bowlers in Rajasthan made Chennai work very hard to achieve this goal, but Chennai lost that goal on the last ball, dropping six wickets. Dhoni played a brilliant round of 58 runs on 43 balls and was instrumental in winning CSK.
