Indian captain MS Dhoni is at it again. Dhoni once again showed the world why he is considered as the smartest cricketer around.
The whole world knows that MSD is different,unorthodox and street smart. Be it in front of the stumps or behind them, India’s limited-overs skipper plays by his own rules. And he has proved that on multiple occasions.
His team Rising Pune Supergiants were playing against Royal Challengers Bangalore and he pulled off a sensational wicket-keeping save that potentially saved a boundary. He did that for the second time in this year’s IPL. He did a similar save against Kings XI Punjab for the first time.
The incident happened in the 8th over of the match. RCB batsman Virat Kohli was batting and he looked to guide a ball by R Ashwin down the third man. Since Dhoni’s hands were behind the ball to collect it if the batsman missed or edged the ball, he stuck out his right leg to stop the shot and prevented it from running to the boundary.
It was a brilliant display of anticipation and presence of mind that saved four runs for his team.
