The fever of the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is increasing with every passing day. The official broadcaster Star Sports is leaving no stone unturned in its promotions as the advertises involving the top Indian cricketers are being liked by the fans. If Jasprit Bumrah challenged the Indian captain Virat Kohli, the young sensation Rishabh Pant warned his idol MS Dhoni ahead of the season.

Bumrah first cautioned Kohli and also went on to say that he will term himself as the world’s best bowler after disturbing the Indian skipper’s timber. To this challenge, Kohli also came up with a response and it is going viral at the moment. The cricketing world was also waiting for MS Dhoni’s answer to Pant who had challenged him in the opening promo of the IPL. Game Dikha Naam Bana (Show your game.. make your name) is trending on social media now.

Wicket ke peeche to main hi rahunga

“Mahi Bhai, Sab aap se seekha hai, toh aap ke saamne game toh dikhana banta hai. IPL mein milengey – Kya kehte ho. (Mahi Bhai, I’ve learnt everything from you and it’s fair to show you my game. Let’s meet in the IPL, what do you say?),” Rishabh Pant had said to MS Dhoni.

MS Dhoni is known for his calm and cool demeanour and once again it came to the fore in his response to India’s young sensation. “Jab main maidan main utra tha, toh aise hi shochta tha. Aja Rishabh, wicket ke peeche toh main hi rahoonga. (When I first stepped onto the field, I used to think the same. Come Rishabh, it will be me behind the wickets only.),” Dhoni said in the latest video going viral.

The IPL is set to commence on March 23 this year with a blockbuster clash between Chennai Super Kings led by MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli‘s Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Chepauk Stadium.
