Veteran Indian cricketer MS Dhoni has been one of the mainstays of the side for over a decade now. The former captain continues to motivate others in the team and is a big influence too. Time and again, the youngsters in the team have credited Dhoni for helping them with his insights on and off the field. In fact, the head coach and the captain of the team have also been very vocal about Dhoni’s contributions.

It is worth noting that during the ongoing limited overs assignment for the Indian team in South Africa, Dhoni has helped the Indian bowlers a great deal. He has often been heard chipping in with his suggestions, particularly for the wrist spinners. It comes as no surprise why many believe that Dhoni deserves a lot of credit for the success of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav.

And now, in a recent incident, MS Dhoni was seen being the mastermind for the dismissal of David Miller in the first T20I of the three-match series against South Africa. Veteran Indian cricketer MS Dhoni has been one of the mainstays of the side for over a decade now. The action perspired in the 7th over of the South African innings.

David Miller was the man on strike and Hardik Pandya had the ball in hand. Pandya bowled a short delivery first up and it sailed way over the head of the southpaw. Dhoni, who caught the ball with ease, looked disappointed with the bouncer. He gestured Pandya to focus and bowl one on the good length.

Following the suggestion of the former Indian captain, Pandya bowled one on the good length. David Miller danced down the track and ended up top edging one in the air. Shikhar Dhawan pocketed the catch and Miller had to head back to the pavilion.
