Right from defining the rules of the game to assisting Deepak Chahar in the friendly contest, MS Dhoni guided throughout the match.
The two-minute-long video started with Dhoni deliberating, “Ek baar me paar nahi kar sakte, do minimum hain” (You can’t cross the ball in one go, two touches/ bounces are minimum). He further asked the cameramen to focus individually on each contestant.
From Karn in the lead 3-1 to Deepak Chahar winning the contest 7-4, the match invited everyone’s undivided attention in the camp. In the course of the game, Dhoni gave tips to both Karn and Chahar to up their game. After Chahar won the contest, he invited ‘anybody’ from the contingent to take head-on.
