Former New Zealand player Martin Guptill came up with a funny statement as he recollected the day that marks the fifth anniversary of his direct hit to run out MS Dhoni in the 2019 ODI World Cup semi-final. The Men in Blue were struggling at 24/4 while chasing New Zealand's 239. At one point in time, the Indian batters were reeling at 92/6 in the 31st over and that is when MS Dhoni came out to bat. The former India skipper soaked all the pressure and batted brilliantly.
But then, India needed 25 runs off 10 deliveries, Dhoni got run out after hitting the ball towards the short fine leg region. It was Guptill who ran across the field and came up with a bullet throw to get rid of Dhoni.
Guptill took to his Instagram handle and shared images of the runout with a caption, "Figured out why I am getting so much hate today."
Also, that game turned out be Dhoni’s final appearance for the Indian team as they were thrashed by 18 runs. While taking part in an interview last year, Guptill stated that he got a lot of hate messages from Indian fans over the MS Dhoni run-out in the 2019 World Cup.
"In other words, the whole of India doesn't like me. I get plenty of hate mails from there. It's one of those things that happened so quickly in the moment. All I remember was I saw the ball go up and I then I thought, oh no, it's coming sort of more towards me. So I put the skates on to get on with that run. I knew there was no chance of a throw at the stumps, but I just tried to have a shot and only had one and a half stumps to aim at and I just got lucky. The stars aligned, and it was a perfect throw," said Guptill to Hindustan Times.
