In this modern era of cricket, on-field verbal spats between opposition players have become routine affair. Every now and then we come across players indulging in provocative acts to gain psychological advantage. Aggression and short tempered youngsters do not have enough patience to bear even the slightest criticism. However, Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is one rare prime example of a disciplined player, who has followed the sport in the right spirit, feels former India opener Aakash Chopra.

The recently concluded series between India and Australia witnessed a number of altercations between the players of both sides, pushing the spirit of cricket to another low level. Appreciating the composed behavior and cool temperament of Dhoni, former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra has said “Dhoni remains quite silent on the field. He lets his performance speak for him. His behavior on the cricket field has been exemplary.”

Further stressing his point Chopra said “In the age of cricket where we see many on-field altercations, here is a cricketer who is hardly involved in any verbal spat. He is a prime example of a proper disciplined cricketer.”

It is not only the Indians who are praising the exemplary on-field behavior of MS Dhoni but former South African batsman Jonty Rhodes, who retired from the longest version of the game in December last year has also underlined the contented behavior of Dhoni. He said “He hardly speaks to his bowlers on the field. The main thing is he has plans for each and every bowler. His bat speaks for him and his plan as a captain also speaks for him. So, he doesn’t need to chatter behind the wickets.”
