MS Dhoni is also recognised by the name ‘Captain Cool’. The man keeps his composure in the toughest of the situation. No matter what the position of the match is, he never stops fighting to win. Dhoni is the only captain to win all three ICC major tournaments. He captained the Indian side in 332 matches across all formats and the only wicketkeeper captain to lead over 100 games.
As the number suggests, the veteran has immense experience in international cricket. He has been involved in many humorous moments throughout his long journey in cricket while guiding his bowlers and fielders. MS is one of the best readers of the game who loves to back his players and knows how to get the best out of them.
Let’s look at the top 5 moments when MS was caught on the stump mic while giving directions to his players in a fun way.

When India played New Zealand in Wellington in 2014. Ravindra Jadeja was bowling to BJ Watling, who was playing good and was having a good partnership with Brendon McCullum. At that very moment, Dhoni said, “ek ghumega toh idhar Pujara ko ussi ke liye rakha hai, who udhar taali bajane ke liye nahi hai” meaning “if ball turns, Pujara is there, he is not standing just to clap”.
