'Captain Cool' MS Dhoni was not quite so cool during the 2nd T20I against South Africa at Centurion which the Men in Blue lost by 6 wickets. Rarely does any cricketer or fan witness the former skipper lose his temper as the 36-year-old has quite a calm and composed image throughout his career so far, however, at the non-strikers end it was middle-order batsman Manish Pandey who felt the wrath of Dhoni which was caught on the television.
India lost Rohit (0) and Virat Kohli (1) early through the hands of Junior Dala whose spells manage to rattle the Indian batsman. Shikhar Dhawan (27) and Suresh Raina (30) contributed with their breezy knocks, however, it was Manish Pandey and MS Dhoni's half centuries that helped the Men in Blue post an imposing total of 188.
It was during the competent Pandey-Dhoni partnership when the latter lost his cool. So here's how the situation went down. Before Dhoni could reach his second T20I half-century, the duo ran between the wickets but apparently, Dhoni caught Pandey off-guard as his mind and concentration was engrossed somewhere else which led Dhoni to lose his calm where he was caught saying, "Oye B****K! Idhar dekh! Udhar kya dekh raha hai", which translates to "Look here! What you looking at there for?!".

This is one of the rarest sights seen as no Indian cricket fan would ever expect the 'calm one' to lose his cool.
Dhoni and Pandya helped the Men in Blue reach a daunting total of 188/4 but the hosts faced no difficulty in chasing down the formidable target as Heinrich Klaasen and in-stand skipper JP Duminy's fifties led the Proteas to win the second T20I and level the series 1-1.
