Bengaluru, Mar 24 : Although skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni remained calm under intense pressure and 'managed chaos' in India's nerve-wracking one-run win over Bangladesh in their penultimate league game of the World Twenty20 , he was left fuming over a hostile question asked by a reporter during the post-match press conference in Bengaluru.
The journalist asked why India was only good enough to win by one run, pointing towards the team's poor run-rate. However, a visibly irate Dhoni hit back by accusing the reporter of being disappointed India won the match.
