Dhoni walked into the press conference smiling, but it soon evaporated at the very first question, which not only took the India skipper by surprise but also left him furious.

Dhoni was asked how satisfied was he with the result, keeping in mind that India needed to win it big to improve their net run rate for brightening the semifinal prospects.

Rubbed the wrong way, Dhoni said, “I know you aren’t happy that India won today.”

As the reporter tried to clarify, Dhoni cut him short and added firmly, “Listen to me. Hearing you, your tone and your question, it’s clear that you aren’t happy that India has won. And when talking about a cricket match, there’s no script. It’s not about the script.”

Giving him a peace of his mind, Dhoni further said, “You have to analyse that after losing the toss, what was the reason that we couldn’t make many runs on that wicket. If you aren’t analysing these things sitting outside, then you shouldn’t ask this question.”
