MS Dhoni is regarded as one of the most composed and tranquil captains. The India legend rarely loses his composure on the field, earning him the nickname “Captain Cool” Even when a player makes an error, Dhoni treats him with respect. During the 2019 IPL, Dhoni shocked the cricket community when he stormed onto the field in fury.
MS Dhoni stepped onto the field during the 25th match of the season to address a no-ball issue. Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) played a match that came down to the limit. For the defending champions, an additional run and a clean strike would have been a boon.
The leg-umpire did not signal a waist-height no-ball, but the television umpire did. Dhoni rushed onto the field, infuriated that the delivery was not ruled a no-ball. Future ICC Hall of Famer’s actions were criticized, and Virender Sehwag wanted him banned for it.

Sehwag told Cricbuzz that Dhoni should have been suspended for two to three games. He was penalized 50% of his match fee.
“I believe that Dhoni was given leniency and should have been suspended for at least two [or three] games. Because if he did this, another commander could do the same thing tomorrow. Then, what is an umpire’s value?” In 2019, Sehwag told Cricbuzz.
“I believe he should not have come to the ground when there were already two [Super Kings] members who were equally curious about the no-ball.”
After Mitchell Santner struck a six off the final delivery in the pursuit for 152, CSK went on to win the match. Dhoni led his team to the season’s final, where they were defeated by Mumbai Indians in a last-ball contest. Dhoni has led CSK to five IPL championships as captain.
