In a rib-tickling incident, the former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni once unintentionally cancelled a Pakistani player’s date with an Indian girl by hitting a six.

MS Dhoni was very strong against Pakistan, especially in the early stages of his career. In fact, the birth of Dhoni the international cricketer was in an ODI at Visakhapatnam against Pakistan where he had smashed 148 after being promoted up the order. Slowly critics started to label him as a white-ball specialist. But then he cut, pulled and hooked his way to his maiden Test century against Pakistan in 2006. 

Before all this, there was a tri-series involving India A, Pakistan A and Kenya in 2004 that actually fast-tracked Dhoni into the Indian side. Why? His twin centuries against Pakistan A of course. Dhoni was the highest run-scorer in that tri-series which India won. But apart from his demolition of Pakistan bowlers, Dhoni had inflicted greater pain to a Pakistan cricketer during that tour. 

According to a report, Dhoni had unkowningly called off a Pakistan cricketer’s ‘date’ with an Indian girl. The report states Dhoni was batting against Pakistan A when the cricketer was standing near the rope in that match at Nairobi.

There he made friends with an Indian girl, who was watching the match from the stands. The Pakistan A cricketer in question was standing at mid-off when one of Dhoni’s sixes went out of the ground. The next thing was the sight of medics rushing to the stands to attend someone who had been hit by the ball.

As it turned out, it was the same Indian girl with whom the Pakistan cricketer was supposed to go on a date with. 

Just a like a lot of other things, Dhoni might not have had a clue about all these things, but his actions somehow always managed to inflict some sort of pain or the other to the opposition. In this case though, it was both personal and professional as India A went on to beat Pakistan A riding on Dhoni’s onslaught.
