IPL is over but we got so many memory from IPL 2016 which none of us will forget easily. Whether it is superb batting by Virat Kohli or emerging bowling from Mustafizur Rahman.
In between all these, we also saw an event when Irfan Pathan sacrifices his wicket for Mahendra Singh Dhoni still didn’t get appreciation from him.
It was 45th Match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rising Pune Supergiants when both the team were fighting in Eden Garden Stadium. A time came in 14th over when Dhoni played a shot on off side on Sunil Narine delivery and run for a single without seeing the ball went straight to Piyush Chawla’s hand. Irfan Pathan on non-striker end refuses to take single but at the time Dhoni was half a crease out from striker end. It was sure that Dhoni will be run out. But Dhoni drew fire on Irfan Pathan and yelled at him to run. Seeing the angriness of Captain Dhoni, Pathan ran knowing he will be run out. Dhoni went on to glare as Pathan walked back to the pavilion.
Irfan Pathan hit 7 in 8 balls while Dhoni remains not out on 8 in 22 balls.
Because of the rain the matched played on DLS rule and KKR won the match.
Watch the video here shared on Facebook as the video has been taken off from Youtube and IPL website.
You can clearly see it was Dhoni fault who didn’t see the ball where it went also didn’t see his partner is not interested in that also but lastly forced Irfan Pathan to run.
Everybody knows about the issue between Irfan Pathan and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. In IPL 2015 he didn’t give him even a single chance to him and in IPL 2016 this was the 2nd chance in past 12 matches.

Irfan Pathan should look for the positives: at least he got a game and got run out by no less than the captain.#KKRvRPS
