5 instances when MS Dhoni slammed journalists
Calmness is a virtue that Indian skipper MS Dhoni possesses in huge proportions. It is his ability to remain cool in tense situations, which has won him the admiration of the entire cricketing fraternity and the fans as well.
However, there have been a few rare occasions when Dhoni has lost his cool and expressed his disgust quite openly. Most of the time, it is the journalists who have faced the ire of the India's iconic wicket-keeper batsman and captain.
The most recent instance occurred at the post-match press conference of the India-Bangladesh match at the ICC T20 World Cup 2016. When a journalist tried to question India's narrow victory in the game, an irate Dhoni tore into him and gave him a piece of his mind.
Let's take a look at 5 instances when MSD slammed journalists in the past:
1. Agrees to quit captaincy if India starts to play well after that
After India's ODI series loss to Bangladesh in 2015, MS Dhoni and his team had to undergo a lot of criticism for losing to an apparently weaker team. At the post-match presentation for the 2nd ODI, questions were thrown at Dhoni on whether it was time for him to quit the limited-overs captaincy as well.
The Indian skipper took exception to this and responded by saying that he is ready to step down if it is justified that Indian cricket will start doing well immediately after that. MS Dhoni also stated that he was never in line to be the captain and even if they take it away from him, he will be happy to play for the country.
