MS Dhoni, the former captain of Indian cricket team and the IPL franchise, Rising Pune Supergiants but he would not take any decision right now without captaincy. After 19th over against Mumbai Indians on Monday, the Australian and RPS’ Captain Steve Smith reached Dhoni and gets suggestion from him regarding who will bowl the last over and where to place the fielders.

Rahane said in the Press conference “After the 19th over, when (Steve) Smith, I and Mahi bhai (Mahendra Singh Dhoni) were discussing who should bowl between Shardul and Jaydev (Unadkat), we picked up Jaydev. Shardul has good pace and we didn’t want to give batsman the pace in the last over.”

“Jaydev’s pace is comparatively lesser than Shardul and his slower ball is effective. The wicket was also little slow and Rohit (Sharma) was a set batsman, so our point was not to give them pace. “One side of the ground is small and one or two shots in the last over (could have made the difference). That was the planning in the last over.”

Rising Pune Super Giant finally won the match. Chasing a target of 161, Mumbai Indians needed 24 runs in the last two overs. Mumbai Indians’ skipper Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya were out there in the middle. The duo, however, could not finish the match and Mumbai’s innings fiished at 157, 3 runs short of RPS’ total score. Watch the video below:
