Watch: Street-Smart MS Dhoni Dismisses Peter Handscomb With Brilliant Stumping

Just a couple of days ago, veteran wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni was facing criticism for his slow knock in the first ODI against Australia. The former India wicketkeeper-batsman had come to the crease when India were reeling at 4 for 3 while chasing 288.  Unsurprisingly, Dhoni as well as Rohit took their time early on as another wicket at that juncture would have pretty much ended India’s slim hopes.

But as the game progressed, Rohit started playing his shots. However, Dhoni continued to struggle from the other end due to which the required run-rate kept on mounting. Dhoni was eventually out after scoring a fighting 51. He consumed as many as 96 deliveries for his knock as the critics once again targeted him. But on Tuesday, the legendary player once again showed why the team-management and the selectors have so much faith in him. Dhoni came up with a stunning effort to dismiss Peter Handscomb in the ongoing second ODI.

Ravindra Jadeja bowled one outside the off-stump, inviting Handscomb to play a big shot. In response, the Australia batsman went for a slogsweep. But in doing so, Handscomb got carried away with the momentum through that shot. On the other hand, MS Dhoni waited for the perfect moment to execute his plan. And just as Handscomb finished his bat swing, his back foot got dragged outside which was more than enough for MS Dhoni to show his street-smartness once again.

Here is a clip of the dismissal:

Meanwhile, Australia lead the three-match series after winning the first game in Sydney by 34 runs. Batting first, they scored 288 for 5 before restricting India to 254 for 9.

India have made a strong start in the do-or-die game. At the time of Handscomb’s dismissal, Australia were 134 for 4.
