Watch: MS Dhoni Misses A Stumping – Unbelievable But True
Cricket witnessed one of those once in blue moon occasion where MS Dhoni, renowned for his flawless wicket-keeping, missed a chance to stump a batsman. This fact may seem untrue, but the unbelievable thing just happened.
The failure rate of MS Dhoni missing such opportunities is infrequent generally. The legendary wicket-keeper is very well – known for being a sort of perfect close – in wicketkeeper. But,
The scene took place in the 23d over, off the 2nd delivery, when Chahal beat Finch with a loopy delivery. The right-hander tried to go for a big shot but was unable to do so as the loopy ball hit him and sneaked past the bat and pad getting an inside edge.
The ball then went on to miss the leg stump as well and beat Dhoni who did not anticipate all these things to happen. This slip-up also cost India four runs and left a sort of stunned expression on MS Dhoni’s face.
Dhoni seemed ready but could not dislodge the bails on time possibly because the batsman blinded him.
Chahal and Dhoni have had a bowler – keeper partnership in the series so far. And, had Dhoni managed to get things in his favour, this would have been the duo’s four collective dismissals. However, luck had its way of telling that even the most flawless talents tend to mess up their acts sometimes.
