MS Dhoni hand-holds spinners to success – MS Dhoni orchestrated the dismissal of Maxwell by Chahal

The tide turned in Australia’s favour for a brief period in Chennai when Glenn Maxwell turbocharged his way to 33 off 13 balls after winning a mini-battle against Kuldeep Yadav at the half-way mark. The required rate, which had inched towards 11 came down to 9, bringing with it a renewed sense hope for the visitors in a game that had turned pear shaped after so much initial promise. That rosy period lasted all of 15 minutes and four sixes before Yuzvendra Chahal produced a delivery made to order by MS Dhoni to effectively shut the door on Australia.

India’s much-talked about wrist spin combination of Chahal and Kuldeep returned 5 for 63 on the night to underscore their wicket-taking prowess. But the two had a streetwise Dhoni to thank for hand-holding them to success on a surface that had anyway progressively become a spinners’ haven. “Woh maarne wala dalna, andar ya baahar koi bhi (Bowl the one that he tries to hit, turning in or away, either is fine)”. Or the more specific “Woh ghoomane waalaaa (the one that turns)” were some of the samples that Dhoni kept dictating to the two young spinners after every ball.

Overs 11 and 12 bowled by Kuldeep and Chahal respectively served as another validation of Dhoni’s immaculate game-reading skills in the limited-overs format. With Australia four down for less than 50 in a truncated 21-over chase, Maxwell was Australia’s only hope of a revival. Even with the ball turning appreciably, Maxwell’s unorthodoxy and his assortment of sweeps could disrupt whatever rhythm the spinners had worked themselves into.

After Maxwell missed a switch-hit to begin the 11th over, a wary Kuldeep offered a drag down on the leg side and was swivel-pulled over short-fine for four. Dhoni instantly chirped from behind the stumps to toss the ball up and wide. Still not convinced, Kuldeep returned with a staple, tossed-up leg spinner on middle stump. Maxwell slog-swept and despite not getting to the pitch of the ball, got enough connection with his reach to send the ball into the stands. Dhoni chimed pensively from behind the stumps again asking for a full, wide delivery.

Kuldeep now got one half of the instruction. He went full but held on to his middle stump line. Maxwell flat-batted it into the sight screen. Even before the ball had landed beyond the ropes, Dhoni was on it. “Na, na, na,” he shouted, indicating his displeasure at the choice of line and the overly full length. “Isko itna aage nahi (Not this full too),” he said. Now clearly rattled, Kuldeep’s attempted course-correction only moved his line in the opposite-to-intended direction. The leg-stump full delivery was lifted cleanly over square-leg by Maxwell to make it 22 for the over.

At this point, Dhoni had had enough with instructions from behind the stumps. He ran up to his young spinner, put an arm around him and explained the situation. It wasn’t hard to decipher the method he wanted. On a turning wicket, tossing the ball outside off-stump and if possible, taking it further away from the batsman (the wrong ‘un for Kuldeep) would force him to hit against the spin. The line outside off-stump would also force slog sweepers of the Maxwell ilk to drag their attempted swipes, increasing the likelihood of a possible miscue.

Dhoni had been at hand to see Adam Zampa make similar mistakes while bowling to Hardik Pandya in the momentum-turning 37th over of the afternoon. This information was relayed to Chahal at the start of the next over and the leggie bowled successive dots to Maxwell with deliveries full and wide outside off. This time the stump microphones carried Dhoni’s voice of approval. The next delivery saw the ball return to a within-the-stumps line and was dutifully retrieved from the deep square-leg stands.

Success came eventually at a happy intersection of line and length that Dhoni so dearly sought. Maxwell threw his bat at it because the required rate demanded it but this time, with the ball turning away, could only succeed in toe-ending it to long-on.

“I’ve bowled a lot to Maxwell in IPL so I was confident,” said Chahal, deconstructing the dismissal. “My plus point is that, Kuldeep’s ball comes into the batsmen, and mine goes out. Virat and MS told me to bowl the one that turns and keep checking his feet. My idea was to bowl a little wide to him, from there if he hits a good shot, then it is fine. My idea was to bowl outside off-stump and keep mixing it up.

“The plan was to get it to spin, but change our line. Our plus point was we kept bowling wide outside off-stump, so if he had to hit he would have to hit on the off-side, because he is strong on the leg side.”

Chahal held his hand up in celebration. Dhoni offered a wry smile. He’d after all seen it all coming a full two overs before.
