Everyone Gets to see MS Dhoni’s funny side
Later on, Dwayne Bravo shed light on his conversation with MS Dhoni. The vetran cricketer asserted that it was a hattrick ball and he wanted to go for a single. He wanted to give strike to MS Dhoni on the final three deliveries.
“Well, for me it was a hat-trick ball. I wanted to make sure I got him on strike. I told him to hit boundaries, not push me for twos. I told him after the innings ‘MS, 3 balls to again (if such a situation comes again), let someone else go and run because I have to protect my hamstring’,” Bravo said after the match.
“But it felt good to be batting with a great. I thought it was a great professional team display. It started with Rutu and Conway. The way they set up the game with their batting ( was good) and then we finished off with the ball as well. Every game we play, we have to play like professionals and look to dominate,” he added.
