When Dhoni showed generosity to Ian Bell, ENG won the match; 'Mahi' made fans crazy with her decision
The matter is related to the 2011 Test between India and England. In fact, in this match, the England team's legendary batsman Ian Bell was also run out in a controversial manner. At that time the captain of Team India was Mahendra Singh Dhoni. One of his decisions surprised the cricket world. Dhoni also received a reward for his sportsmanship.
A beautiful picture of sportsmanship was seen in the second ODI between Bangladesh and New Zealand when despite Ish Sodhi being run out, Bangladesh captain Liton Das called him back to play. Meanwhile, Ish Sodhi hugged Hasan. Seeing this reminded me of one such decision of MS Dhoni.
The matter is related to the 2011 Test between India and England. In fact, in this match, the England team's legendary batsman Ian Bell was also run out in a controversial manner. At that time the captain of Team India was Mahendra Singh Dhoni. One of his decisions surprised the cricket world.
What happened was that during the test match, Eoin Morgan and Ian Benn were batting on the field. Meanwhile, Morgan played a shot towards the leg side on a ball from Ishant Sharma. The ball was moving towards the boundary. Praveen Kumar stopped the ball before it touched the boundary line. Later threw at the striker's end.
Here, the English players felt that the ball had touched the boundary. So he relaxed and walked towards the dugout taking the tree break. Meanwhile, the Indian fielder picked up the ball and blew away the stumps. The Indian team appealed and then the third umpire declared Ian Bell out.
However, after the break, everyone was surprised when Ian Bell came to bat with Morgan again. Actually, Dhoni had withdrawn the appeal after going to the dressing room. He did not think it right to dismiss the opposition player like this.
Ian Bell later said that it was his mistake, he should have completed the run. At the same time, the sporting spirit of Mahendra Singh Dhoni was honored by ICC with the Spirit of Cricket Award of Decade. Although India lost this test match.
