Video: Kieron Pollard departs moments after a Tactical Field change by MS Dhoni

Mahendra Singh Dhoni is famously called the Mastermind of cricket for a reason. There is not even an iota of doubt in the fact that he is undoubtedly one of the most sharpest brains in the game of cricket when it comes to limited over cricket. He is particular a legend when it comes to captaincy in the Indian Premier League and is undoubtedly on of the best captains ever in cricket. Although he is no longer the captain of CSK, MS Dhoni is often seen making some tactical decisions for CSK and he was spotted seeing exactly that in today’s match as well.

Ravindra Jadeja said in an earlier interview after he was made the captain of Chennai Super Kings that having MS Dhoni in the team is a big relief as with him in the team Jaddu already has a guide to look up to and take instructions from. Dhoni is one of the most experienced captains currently and his advices are pure gold.

In today’s big match between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians, his Mastermind genius spoke out for itself in the 17th over of the first innings.

In the 17th over, Maheesh Theeksana was bowling against Kieron Pollard and MS Dhoni made a special field setup for Kieron Pollard. He sent Shivam Dube straight to the outfield and it did wonders for CSK. On the very next delivery, Kieron Pollard hit a shot straight into the hands of Shivam Dube and he had to depart. Dhoni’s brilliance speaks for itself once again.
