Shane Watson recalls time when he saw MS Dhoni angry in IPL as CSK skipper: Former Chennai Super Kings (CSK) batter Shane Watson has recalled a moment when he saw Mahendra Singh Dhoni losing his cool during a match in the Indian Premier League. Watson said he never saw Dhoni furious except for that one moment during the IPL 2019.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni is widely known as captain cool for his chilled demeanour, besides his sharp captaincy and finishing skills. Owing to his brilliant captaincy, and cool behaviour, MS Dhoni has led team India to three ICC titles, besides taking Chennai Super Kings to four IPL victories, of which one came in last season.

Watson in a conversation with India Today said that MS is the coolest person in the dressing room. He also tries to keep the negative energies out of the dressing room so that it doesn’t affect the players.

The former CSK batter further said that it was during IPL 2019 when CSK were playing against Mumbai Indians, and Dhoni lost a bit of his cool and kicked his bag.

“When you talk about whether he gets flustered or anything, the only time I have seen him a tiny bit frustrated was when we lost against MI in the IPL final in 2019. I saw him halfway kick his bag a little bit, just a tiny bit. You could see how much it meant to him,” the former Australia player was quoted by India Today.

“No matter what the situation is, he is calm. It resonates throughout the whole group. One of the most important things in a cricket environment is to take all the worry and stress out of the environment and that’s what he does because of who the person he is,” Watson added.

The former Indian skipper, MS Dhoni, once again showed his cool demeanour during the recent high-pressure contest against arch-rivals Mumbai Indians (MI). CSK required 17 runs off the final over and MS Dhoni did what he does the best.

The CSK keeper scored 16 off the last four deliveries against Mumbai and took CSK to the second victory of the season.
