WATCH: MS Dhoni makes a complete fool of the cameraman while trying to hit a huge six

Former Indian skipper MS Dhoni had a forgettable outing with the bat in the first T20I against Australia at the Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam on Sunday. The 37 year old could only manage 29 runs off 37 deliveries at a strike rate of 78.37, the second lowest by an Indian batsman in a T20I innings of more than 35 balls. Dhoni played out 17 dot balls denying 8 singles and managed to hit only one boundary in the last 10 overs.

There was however one instance during MS Dhoni’s innings in which the veteran managed to deceive the cameraman into believing that his shot would go for a six when it was only a dot ball. It was of the 20th over when Dhoni attempted to smash the ball out of the park in the very first ball of the over. Nathan Coulter Nile, who was bowling the last over of the innings, bowled a fuller delivery angling into the batsman. Dhoni failed to connect with the middle of his bat, only to drag it off the inside half to deep mid wicket.

The cameraman however felt that the ball was going for a six and panned the camera angle upwards only to later realise that the ball had gone in the direction of midwicket. Dhoni denied to take the single and it eventually ended up being a dot ball. Dhoni however managed to break the shackles and hit the next ball for a six over extra cover to take India’s total to a respectable one.
