Important to manage chaos - MS Dhoni

After India successfully carried out a heist against Bangladesh at Bangalore, skipper MS Dhoni admitted that it was imperative to manage chaos. Dhoni, who has time and again been an absolute legend in managing some perilous situations, was at his best at Bangalore. In the post match conference, Dhoni spoke about the need to ensure that chaos around a side was managed efficiently.

“In a situation like this, it’s literally chaos. What you are trying to do is you’re trying to manage chaos,” Dhoni said. “Everybody will come and he’ll have his own opinion. Often the opinion of a batsman is very different to the opinion of a bowler. But what you have to do is you have to see what the strength of the batsman is who is batting at that point of time, how the wicket is behaving, whether there is some kind of reverse swing or no reverse swing on offer. All these things you need to calculate and I feel what really helps is you listen to all of them,” the Indian captain said.

“But at the end of the day you push the bowler to bowl what you feel is good at that point of time. If I am convinced that this is something I want to do, I will go ahead with it but definitely having an open mind at that point of time really helps because at times in situations like these under pressure, that’s where the input of others comes in. But you have to assess everything and it has to happen in a very short span of time,” Dhoni added.

He also reiterated the reason behind giving Hardik Pandya the last over. “There were quite a few options. There was Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Hardik Pandya was there. That was the reason behind it. Often it’s quite an easy one. You want to give a cushion of an extra few runs and you go back to your main bowlers, you back their strength and say whatever runs you save it all keeps mounting on the last over and if he’s able to execute his plans then we’ll be on the winning side,” Dhoni said.
