The former Indian Cricket Team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is known for doing unexpected things on the cricket field. As a wicket-keeper batsman, he has done some extraordinary work, and that's why the whole world loves him. He is also known as one of the greatest captains in the history of the game.We, humans, commit mistakes and how can Dhoni be an exception? It was during a match against Australia in 2012 when Dhoni did something unexpected. I know you may be wondering why I am talking about the mistake today. Since we all have been engaging in IPL matches these days, I chose this day to reveal something about Dhoni. (Don't curse me)
The first match between India and Australia of the Commonwealth Bank Series was played at Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne on Feb 5, 2012.
The rain was continuously pouring. After the rain, the match was made of 32 overs, and there were some changes made in the rules of the game.
Due to decreased overs, only two bowlers were allowed from both sides to bowl a maximum of seven overs, but MS gave three bowlers seven overs.
Two Indian bowlers Praveen Kumar and Vinay Kumar completed their seven overs in the match, despite that Dhoni gave Rahul Sharma his seventh over which was against the rules.
The umpires caught the mistake after two deliveries, and they did not allow Rahul to continue.
