In an astonishing incident, MS Dhoni unknowingly cancelled a Pakistani player’s date with an Indian girl by hitting a six. MS Dhoni had a glorious career, but he got his kick start against India’s arch-nemesis Pakistan. He was stupendous against them and had hit a stellar knock of 148 after being promoted to bat at No. 3 in 2005 — to register his maiden international century.
MS Dhoni also got his first Test century against Pakistan. He also made a break into the Indian side after proving himself in a tri-nation series in 2004 playing for India A against Pakistan A and Kenya. Dhoni was the highest run-scorer in that tri-series which India won and had hit two centuries against Pakistan.
A Pakistani Cricketer Had His Date Called Off Because Of MS Dhoni’s Six
In an incident reported by Cricbuzz, MS Dhoni had unintentionally cancelled a Pakistani cricketer’s date by sending the girl to the hospital by his six. A Pakistani cricketer was forced to stay on the boundary line in the tri-series because Dhoni was hitting big hits. He managed to talk to an Indian girl in the stands and had convinced her to go on a date later.
The Pakistani fielder was fielding at mid-off when one of Dhoni’s huge sixes had hit someone in the stands. Little did he know, that Dhoni’s had ruined his plans. A girl in the stands was hit by Dhoni’s six and had to be given medical attention as she suffered injuries. She was the same girl who was befriended by that particular Pakistani player.
MS Dhoni had again managed to cause trouble to the opposition but this time more in a personal way than professional. India won the series and the match. MS Dhoni came as a replacement for Dinesh Karthik, who was called for India duties, had scored 362 runs in six innings in that tri-series with two hundreds at an average of 72.40.
