Dhoni has often been said to be faster than the speed of light with his glove work. Escaping from MS Dhoni’s lightning fast activity behind the stumps is a very rare stuff. It is almost impossible for any batsmen in the world.
Considered as one of the greatest ever wicket-keepers, MS Dhoni has produced many stunning acts with the gloves. He has been proving it every time. And in the 2nd ODI against Australia at Eden Gardens, Dhoni once again proved why he is rated so highly.
Enough has been written about MS Dhoni’s glovework over the years, he is after all the man who has affected more stumpings than any stumper in the history of one-day internationals. Dhoni’s speed behind the stumps has brought about meme’s saying that he is quicker than the blink of an eye.
So when Dhoni makes a stumping, it is almost always an event within an event.
Young Indian bowler Yuzvendra Chahal got the wicket of Glenn Maxwell but the whole credit goes to MS Dhoni. In the 23rd over of Australian innings, Chahal put a bit of wide in his delivery inviting Maxwell forward. But the spin on the ball took it past the outside edge
While going for the ball, Dhoni lost his grip. But he took a dive and before hitting the ground, and he completed the stumping in a miraculous move. Dhoni isn’t known to celebrate strongly on the field, but even he enjoyed this particular stumping.

It sure was one of his best stumpings ever. Maxwell made 14 of 18 balls with two sixes. However, the outstanding performance of the hosts, India lead the five-match ODI series 2-0.
