MS Dhoni and his crazy understanding of cricket is not unknown and today, we got to witness it first hand. Again.
Keeping wickets as Kuldeep Yadav was bowling to Trent Boult, Dhoni gave him a step-by-step guide on how to dismiss the Kiwi batsman.
As Kuldeep was preparing for the run-up, Dhoni said:
Yeh aankh bandh karke rokega. Dusra waala daal sakta hai isko.
No points for guessing that's exactly what Boult did and none for predicting that he was dismissed.
As I said, this wasn't the first time we saw him doing this. His genius mind amazes us every time, nevertheless.

Idhar se daal sakta hai.Kuldeep goes round the wicket.Boult does exactly the sameBoult caught Sharma bowled Kuldeep.Look at the reactions of Dhoni & Kuldeep 🤣🤣Dhoni ka dimaag Chacha Chaudhary se bhi tez chalta hai😎😎#NZvIND pic.twitter.com/aC8Vs0gUPc— The Joker (@cooljalz1808) January 23, 2019

Dhoni's instructions to the spinners from behind the stumps are a masterclass in reading batsmen. "Yeh aankh bandh karke rokega." Tells Kuldeep to come round the stumps and full. Bang goes the last wicket. #NZvIND— Anand Vasu (@anandvasu) January 23, 2019
