Kuldeep bowls a wrong one, stumps Dhoni with humour

IANS  |  Mumbai 

The old adage goes "to err is human..." and it is often believed that former M.S. Dhoni, one of the best thinkers in the game of cricket, is beyond mistakes when it comes to strategising and calling the game on the pitch. However, there are times when even falters, as teammate reveals.

"There are a lot of times he (Dhoni) goes wrong but then you can't say that to him," Kuldeep joked on the sidelines of the CEAT Rating Awards here on Monday.

The left-arm chinaman, however, said that doesn't like to talk much during the game and puts forward his views between overs only when he feels it is required.

"He doesn't speak much. He speaks only between overs if he thinks he needs to point out something," added Kuldeep.

Dhoni, regarded as one of the best finishers in the modern day cricket, has led during their successful campaigns at the 2007 World T20 and Under his leadership, also attained the top spot in ICC Test Rankings.

While his team Chennai Super Kings lost to Mumbai Indians in the final of the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League, was himself in fine form right through the tournament and amassed 416 runs from 15 games at a strike rate of 134.62.

And if India are to stay true to the favourites tag and win this year's in England and Wales, Dhoni will have a major role to play in ensuring that the young Indian bowling attack gets the right guidance in trying situations.
