MS Dhoni’s presence behind the stumps is unquestionable and his lightening quick reflexes usually leave opponents clueless. But during the second ODI against West Indies, the former Indian captain displayed some incredible calm as he stumped Jason Holder quite literally in slow motion.
Exceptional batting performances from Ajinkya Rahane (103), Virat Kohli (87), and Shikhar Dhawan(63) helped India beat Windies by 105 runs in the second ODI at Port of Spain. The bowlers then followed up the exquisite batting performance as they restricted the hosts to 205/6 in their chase of 311.
During the West Indies innings, the Indian bowlers, especially Kuldeep Yadav impressed viewers with his impeccable bowling, just as he had done on his Test debut against Australia.
In the 37th over of the West Indies innings, skipper Jason Holder was on strike when Kuldeep Yadav bowled a flighted delivery which was difficult for the Windies skipper to read. Though Holder came down the track, looking to smash the ball down the ground, he was beaten all ends up by the delivery. And before he knew it, the ball was poached by MS Dhoni behind the stumps.
Moreover, the 25-year-old was so far down the wicket that Dhoni had all the time in the world to take the bails off. And Dhoni took full advantage of that fact as he removed the bails quite literally in slow motion. The 35-year-old's antics was thoroughly enjoyed by the fans enjoyed, as they witnessed Dhoni's slowest stumping ever.
