Former Indian skipper M S Dhoni who is referred to as Captain cool for his calm and composed demeanor showed a different side of himself by losing his cool in the second T20 against South Africa in Centurion.

Dhoni who staged an important partnership with middle-order batsman Manish Pandey in India's innings against the Proteas lost his temper over the latter losing concentration while batting with Mahi. Dhoni hurled a series of abuses on his younger partner for showing his lack of willingness to run between the wickets.

While many did not notice the scene, a video of the same has become viral on the social media now. Dhoni who is seen as the perfect counter to Indian team's aggressive skipper Virat Kohli could not control his emotions and gave it off to the Karnataka batsman for being mentally absent in the match.
