MS Dhoni has always played a pivotal role in the Indian team. Not only for his blistering performances, but also for the valuable inputs he shares with youngsters on-field. On many occasions, Dhoni’s advice to Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal has resulted into a wicket. In the fifth ODI as well, Dhoni continued the ritual. The former Indian skipper was heard passing instructions to Kedar Jadhav on the areas he needs to cover while bowling. But this time he stunned everyone with his Marathi speaking skills.
