During the second game of the IPL 2017 edition between Rising Pune Supergiant and Mumbai Indians, a strange but funny incident happened. Actually, the former Indian captain, MS Dhoni was in a mood to have some fun with the former England batsman Kevin Pietersen.
Manoj Tiwary, who was at the first slip, was on the microphone chatting with commentator Pietersen when the former England captain said: “Manoj just tell MS Dhoni that I am a better golfer than him.”
Manoj relayed the message to Dhoni: Pietersen keh rahe hain woh aapse accha golfer hain (Pietersen is saying he is a better golfer than you).” Dhoni replied with a strange face: “But you are still my only Test wicket!”
Pietersen broke out laughing and responded: “It was a referral. IT WAS A REFERRAL! Not Out. I’ll tell you what. It’s wonderful when you get real good people on the mic, you got the players on there, you get some great stuff. Well done, mate.”

In 2011, during a test match between England and India at Lord’s, Dhoni was forced to bowl after Zaheer Khan limped out with a torn hamstring. He had got Pietersen out but it was overturned after a referral.
