IPL 2019: MS Dhoni once again showed he is the coolest cricketer in the fraternity when he took an easy catch of Riyan Parag and just did not react. Thakur bowled a good length ball, Parag looked to hit it on the up only managing to find an outside edge and Dhoni did the rest. Dhoni just did not react after he took the catch, there was a slight raising of the hand. The umpire was convinced as the batsman started walking and then he raised his finger. It was a pleasant surprise to see Dhoni react like that in an age and time when Imran Tahir and Virat Kohli have taken celebrations to a different level altogether.
Here is the video:
Meanwhile, Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and opted to bowl against Rajasthan Royals in an Indian Premier League (IPL) tie at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium here on Thursday.
