New Delhi: Despite not being the skipper of India's limited-overs squad, Mahendra Singh Dhoni is still pretty active on the field when it comes to decision making. From having a chat with bowlers to setting the field, the Ranchi dynamo has been ensuring that there is not too much burden on the shoulders of Virat Kohli while leading the team.

In the 2nd T20I against England, Men in Blue were under pressure having put just 143 runs on board. England, who already had a 1-0 lead in the series, looked in a decent position after scoring 42 runs in the first seven overs.
However, after the first ball of the eighth over was bowled, Dhoni interrupted the proceedings by stopping the game.
As Joe Root took guard to face the second ball, the former Indian skipper got the field umpire's attention towards one of the bails, which had stopped working. Dhoni's decision forced umpire Anil Chaudhary to call for a replacement of a bail, so as to ensure fair play.
