When Mahendra Singh Dhoni started his international career, everyone was a fan of his explosive batting. Dhoni preferred to hit boundaries and sixes over one or two runs. Pakistan were one of Mahi’s favorite teams and Dhoni scored a lot against this team between 2005 and 2008. Dhoni was a very cool looking player on the field and during his career he never quarreled with anyone. However, Mahi believed he would answer everything with his bat. In the Test match between India and Pakistan in 2006, only a few scenes appeared. Dhoni responded with a dash of Danish Kaneria’s delivery by putting on sixes in the next two balls.

In 2006, the Test team played a strong position and the team lost 5 wickets and scored over 300 runs. Dhoni and Irfan Pathan were in the crease and together they scored 39 runs. Dhoni went ahead and defended the ball with a wandering Danish Kaneria, who then expressed his anger and picked up the ball and threw it towards Dhoni. The ball passed through Mahi’s head and reached the wicketkeeper’s gloves. After this, Dhoni responded by hitting two galactic sixes in Kaneri’s next two balls. Mahi passed the ball across the stadium.
