When Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma Made Dhoni Unhappy

When Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma Made Dhoni Unhappy

Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli reveals the game-changing knock in his cricket career. Interestingly this was also one such match when then Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni lost his calm.

Kohli recalls how Dhoni lost his cool

While talking to veteran off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin during a live Instagram session Indian captain Virat recalled a moment when Dhoni lost his cool. Recalling India Vs Pakistan clash in 2012 Asia Cup, Kohli told that his collision with Rohit Sharma while fielding during Pakistan’s innings gave two extra runs that did not go well with Dhoni. Kohli remembered, “It was very funny and I remember MS wasn’t too happy about it. Pakistan I think had posted 329 and they had some very big partnerships in the beginning. At that time we (he and Rohit) sort of messed up, it was supposed to be a single but we gave away three runs.”

He narrated the incident and said that they did not even realize what exactly happened for the next few minutes. “I remember Irfan (Pathan) running after the ball and throwing it back to MS and MS was like how can these two guys just collide and give away three runs. The bowler was you (Ashwin). I remember Umar Akmal played it like that, I was at deep mid-wicket and Rohit was at deep square-leg. I came in, Rohit was also going for the ball and the side of my head hit Rohit’s shoulder. I don’t think it was that serious, it was just the heat of the moment when we went for the ball and like for five minutes couldn’t figure out what had happened.”

Kohli’s game-changer innings of career

Pakistan scored 329/6 at Dhaka and the chase was not easy for the Indian cricket team. But Kohli as always spoiled the party and helped India with the match. “Their bowling attack was quite potent. At the time they were a really challenging bowling attack because of the variations. There was Saeed Ajmal, Umar Gul, Aizaz Cheema and there was Hafeez as well. For the first 20-25 overs, the conditions were clearly in their favour but I remember I was just happy batting next to paaji (Sachin Tendulkar).”

In fact, this was Tendulkar’s last ODI where he scored a half-century. Kohli scored 183 runs and according to him, it was a game-changer inning in his career. “It naturally happened because I was constantly boosting myself up to want those situations to happen. I think that turned out to be a game-changer for me. I fondly remember that chase it was really tough, Rohit played brilliantly and in the end, MS Dhoni and Raina finished with three overs to spare or something, chasing 330 which was quite memorable,” Kohli colcluded.
