Centurion: After put in to bat by South Africa's skipper Duminy under a cloudy sky, Team India posted a challenging 188 for 4 in the second T20 worldwide match at the Centurion Park here. He has rarely shown his emotions on the cricket field.

It was the last over of the India innings when Manish Pandey hit one towards mid-wicket and ran a single. The incident happened in final over of India's innings when Dhoni was at the crease. Off the first ball, Pandey was refused a second run by Dhoni, who is usually lightening fast between the wickets. It is seldom we see an angry Dhoni and Wednesday was one such night. While it is still unclear as to what he said, many believe that the words he used were indeed the cuss words. Actually, the stump mike recorded the whole abuse of Dhoni.

"Oye, b******e, idhar dekh le". During the final over of India's innings in the second T20 worldwide against South Africa at Centurion yesterday, Dhoni threw down some expletives at Pandey, who was not quick enough to respond for the second run. For, in the ODI series and in the last T20I, the lower-middle order failed at getting the big shots in the death overs.

Dhoni in the first 19 balls of his innings scored just 24 runs with 1 four and a six. "Best wishes to the bowlers to defend 188,". "I thought South Africa bowled fairly well".

The 28-year-old said that he found the going tough to emulate the likes of senior players Suresh Raina and Yuvraj Singh, who has won matches batting at No 5, "The people who have batted at No 5 before me have been guys like Raina, Yuvraj".

Manish said he was itching to play at the SuperSport Park as this is the very ground where he hit the first 100 of the IPL back in the second edition of the cash-rich league and became a household name. "But I think South Africa bowled fairly well today", added the right-handed batsman. But the target didn't prove to be enough as the hosts chased it down with 8 balls to spare.
