Piyush Chawla has recalled one such incident in which MS Dhoni’s genius gave India a wicket. India were playing England at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in the group stage of the 2011 World Cup. I was having a 45 for Trott. MS Dhoni told me to move fielder from there and get it to square-leg. I said, ‘I don’t need that’. He said, ‘No, just do that and bowl.’ And I got a square-leg instead of 45, and two balls later, he got out.
