Besides being famous for his clever tactics behind the wickets and as a leader, MS Dhoni is best known for his witty answers in press meets and comments from behind the wickets. Continuing his good form in this department, Dhoni this time, probably unintentionally trolled his teammate Ben Stokes in Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS). In a video shared by Gulf Oil India’s official YouTube channel, players are given challenge of how well they know each other in the team. Players who took part in this interesting challeng were Dhoni, Ajinkya Rahane and Ben Stokes. RPS vs DD, IPL 2017, Match 9, preview: Both teams look to bounce back after disappointing defeats
A total of nine tricky questions were asked to these three players and guess what, Stokes was the best performer among them. The answer of every question was one of their teammates and Stokes did it brilliantly by giving 7 correct out of 9. Whereas, Rahane gave 6 correct answers and Dhoni ended with 5. Dhoni might have performed poorly in this challenge but he ensured the humour part was at its best best during this with some of his witty answers.
One of the interesting highlight of the video is when Dhoni is asked who is the biggest Roger Federer fan in the team and he picked four placards of his teammates, including Steven Smith, Dan Christian, Faf du Plessis and Stokes. After picking out those placards, Dhoni said, “All of them are Roger Federer fans. I am a Nadal fan.”
However, the best part came in the end when Dhoni had to answer the name of cricketer who holds the record for fastest 250 in Tests. Dhoni seemed a bit confused and picked du Plessis and Smith’s placard and asked the viewers to choose one of them. But the answer was something else. Further, Dhoni was given the clue that he is one of the three in the room and he spontaneously Rahane, “Is it you?” But Dhoni got shocked when he got to know that Stokes has a 250 in Test and wittingly said, “You scored a 250!”
This was certainly an interesting video where these three big players were having fun. RPS will play their next game against Delhi Daredevils on Tuesday at Pune.
