MS Dhoni can do everything. He is brilliant with the bat. He is the best guardian in the world. He is a great mentor to the captain of India, Virat Kohli, and is excellent with the Decision Review System.

Few in world cricket can use the DRS better than the MS Dhoni, but on Sunday he made a rare mistake against Pakistan in India’s fourth game at the 2019 Cricket World Cup.

The rare mistake of Dhoni happened in 19 on the persecution of 337 in Pakistan when Yuzvendra Chahal appealed for a BPN against Babar Azam. Chahal threw a flatter bun that slid off the surface to take Babar by surprise. The decision on the spot was not made in the field, but Chahal urged Captain Virat Kohli to undergo a review.

Kohli, as he always does, consulted MS Dhoni, but the veteran ranger who has a better view of the proceedings was not entirely sure, as he apparently suggested that the ball had hit Babar’s bat before the platform.

Kohli finally did not go to the review.

At first glance, it seemed that the ball had hit Babar’s bat first. However, the reps suggested that the ball had hit his pad first. The ball tracker then showed that Chahal’s delivery could have hit the stump, triggering a wave of reactions on social media.

Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman batted well and sewed a dangerous 104-run position, but Khaldeep Yadav, Chahal’s wrist turn partner, rattled Pakistan’s innings by eliminating the two batters in quick succession. Babar was fired by 48 while Kuldeep cheated the batter from Pakistan with drifting, flying and spinning. Fakhar died by 62 while trying to sweep Kuldeep.

Hardik Pandya then withdrew Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik in quick succession to leave Pakistan reeling in its pursuit.
