Centurion: After put in to bat by South Africa's skipper Duminy under a cloudy sky, Team India posted a challenging 188 for 4 in the second T20 global match at the Centurion Park here.

Dhoni loves to sprint between the wickets and he has revealed many times in the past that stealing an extra run gives him a real high.

"As you know, India have a really good top line up and the top-3 bat till 30-35 overs and with Mahi coming ahead of me. I had to see a doctor also because of that". But Dhoni, who has faced questions regarding his form in the limited-overs cricket silenced his critics with his bat. "But yeah, some more chances and I wish I could deliver more", said Pandey. After the first ball, Dhoni was seen yelling at Pandey, asking him to focus towards him and not look elsewhere.

However, Dhoni raised quite a few eyebrows when he lost his cool during the second T20I of the ongoing three-match series in Centurion on Wednesday, February 21. But the batting combination sometimes pushes me down to No 5. But it's okay, it's part of the game and you have to wait your chances, especially playing for a team like India when you have so many stars and legends after legends in the line-up.

IBTimes India has compiled a list of reactions to Wednesday's passage of play, in which Dhoni lost his cool.

"I have got a few chances at number four and I have delivered".

"The people who have batted at this spot before me, like Raina and Yuvi, well, it is also tough to fill in their shoes". When the ball went deep, Pandey settled for a single. That's what I tried in the first game, I played a little slow, but it happens when you play after a long time. He feels being in and out of the team works against you whenever you are trying to come back. It was in my mind a little bit but today was a good day for me and I want to continue playing the way I have always played.
