Seldom do we witness Mahendra Singh Dhoni losing his cool. The former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is well known for his sedate nature but the second T20I match between South Africa and India saw a rare moment when Dhoni lost his cool.

The former skipper MS Dhoni was not impressed by his running partner Manish Pandey in the last over of the Indian innings. The incident happened when Pandey took a single off the first ball of the final over and didn’t look at Dhoni for the second run.

Dhoni was furious at Pandey.

The Indian wicketkeeper lashed out at Pandey for not communicating with him and asked him to look at him while running. Dhoni once again gave a perfect finishing touch to Indian innings and he scored a quickfire 52 off just 28 balls. This was Dhoni’s second T20I half-century. Pandey also scored at a brisk pace and scored 79 off just 48 balls.

Dhoni and Pandey put together an alliance of 98 runs off just 55 balls but the Indian bowlers were not able to defend the target as the Proteas cruised to the total with the help of fine knocks by wicketkeeper Heinrich Klaasen and skipper JP Duminy.

We have hardly seen MS Dhoni showing his emotions on the field but he was not at all impressed with Manish Pandey turning his back on him while running. The result was such that an angry Dhoni hit the shot of the match as clobbered the maximum to the deep covers region. India took 19 runs off the final over but they were not able to defend their total of 188 runs.

Here is how Twitter reacted to MS Dhoni’s frustration on Manish Pandey.
