Veteran wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni is known as the epitome of calmness and composure. This is the reason why he earned the tag of ‘Captain Cool’ during the time he led Team India and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

However, there have been also rare incidents when Dhoni lost his cool. One such instance happened in the CSK dressing room during IPL 2014. Recently, Dhoni’s former CSK teammate Suresh Raina revealed the reason.

In a recent interaction, Rain revealed that Dhoni was left infuriated after the loss against Punjab Kings in the second Qualifier of IPL 2014. As per Raina, Dhoni threw his helmet and pads in the dressing room and vented out his frustration over the lack of runs from the CSK batters.

“I have never seen Dhoni that angry. He vented it out after that match. He was like ‘we don’t score runs, we don’t do this, that’. He threw his pads and helmet in the dressing room. He was irritated that we lost a match that we should have won. He was angry because we lost a match that we shouldn’t have. Otherwise, we would have won the IPL that year as well,” said Raina.
