Dhoni has left captaincy but his decisions are still beneficial to the team. Often, we see him give valuable tips to the team, especially Virat Kohli.
Be it changing fields or giving DRS, Dhoni is too good. Even other players love taking his opinion. Today, during the match of India against Bangladesh, we came across an interesting conversation between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings.
Well, it was getting difficult to take Shakib Al Hasan’s wicket and this is where Dhoni came to the rescue. He told Rohit Sharma to change field and it worked wonders. Shikhar Dhawan was seen placed inside at the leg side inside the circle.
This field change helped to take the big wicket. Mumbai Indians was happy to see this and as expected, they praised their captain Rohit Sharma for his wit.
Here’s what they tweeted;
Smart captaincy from Rohit Sharma who moves Dhawan to square leg citing Shakib's intentions. Jadeja sticks to his plan and forces Shakib to sweep, who holes out to Dhawan. Brilliant from India!

However, Chennai Super Kings noticed this tweet and reminded them that Dhoni was the mastermind.

The tweet read, “eading batsman’s brain from behind the stumps! Thala Mastermind! #WhistlePodu #INDvBAN 💛🦁”
Haha, indirectly they tried to highlight the smartness of CSK captain. We loved this Twitter banter between MI and CSK. What about you?
It’s good that as a team, India defeated Bangladesh by 7 wickets. We owe it to all players, as everyone worked hard.
