MS Dhoni was not very happy with his batting partner Manish Pandey when the latter failed to look back at the former Indian skipper after completing a quick single during their 98-run stand against South Africa in the second T20I in Centurion.
On the first ball of the last over, Pandey got a single off Dane Paterson but Dhoni thought there was another run to be had. He called for a second but Pandey was not paying heed to Dhoni’s call.
And then the wicket-keeper batsman lashed out angrily at Pandey for watching the ball instead of looking at his partner.
A video of Dhoni admonishing Pandey went viral soon after.
Most of the fans were shocked to see Dhoni reacting so angrily. He is known for his calmness and coolness under pressure. Even as captain, Dhoni rarely betrayed his emotions. Then what was going on now?
It was also reported media that the Ranchi lad used swear words in Hindi which went like, “Oye. Bh*sd*ke. Idhar dekh le. Udhar kya dekh raha hai. (Look here. Why are you staring over there)”.
And now, all confusions on that have been cleared and here’s what the 36-year-old big-hitter actually said to Pandey, “Oyee.. Bhootni ke, Idhar dekh le, bole they na idhar dekhne, udhar kya dekh raha hai.. Main Idhar khada hu na Batting Kar Raha.”(Hey, where are you looking? Look here, why are you looking there… I am standing at batting end).”
People misinterpreted Dhoni’s words as the lipsync of it roughly translates to an urban slang. The word used by MSD was ‘Bhootni ke’ contrary to what most people think ‘Bh*sd*ke’, which is an expletive.
