Asia Cup 2018 Super Four, India vs Afghanistan Match 5: Even before the first ball in the India Afghanistan game was bowled, MS Dhoni had become the top trend in the country on Twitter once he walked out for the toss instead of Rohit Sharma. Rohit had been rested for the dead-rubber against Afghanistan. Arguably the most successful captain for India, MS Dhoni showed once a captain, always a captain. At a certain point in time in the match, Kuldeep Yadav asked Dhoni for a change in the field to which Dhoni promptly said, “Bowling karega ya bowler change karun.” This means you want to bowl or should I change the bowler.Also Read - IPL 2021 Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians Match Preview Video: Probable Playing 11s, Dubai Weather, Pitch Report

Earlier, Yadav narrated an entire conversation during the show ‘What the Duck’, which had taken place in the past.
“Wherever I pitched the ball, it went for six. The ground was so small. After every six, I would look at Mahi (Dhoni). He would say, ‘it wasn’t that far, you should keep it further’,” Yadav said.
“And when I was bowling my fourth over; the batsman reverse swept me for four. Mahi bhai came to me and said, ‘remove cover, move him deep and bring point up’,” Yadav recalled.
“And I said, ‘No Mahi bhai, that’s okay’,” the bowler said.
“After hearing this, Mahi bhai got angry and said, “Kya main pagal hoon yaha pe, mai 300 ODI khela hoon (Do you think I’m mad? I’ve played 300 ODIs)’,” Yadav said.
