- There is nothing that MS Dhoni can’t do
- Dhoni was all set to be stumped out after a wide ball from Mitchell Santner went to wicketkeeper Glenn Phillips’ hands when Dhoni was out of the crease
- However, Dhoni stretched his legs in the shape of a coat-hanger and reached the crease in the nick of time
There is nothing that MS Dhoni can’t do. The 36-year-old wicket-keeper batsman has the quickest pair of hands behind the wickets and can put any bowler to shame when he gets going with the bat.
But there are a section of cricket fans who believe that the former Indian captain should retire from the game and make way for younger players. What has fueled this belief is the 40 run loss that India suffered against New Zealand.
Although MS Dhoni scored more than all the top order batsmen combined, exception being Virat Kohli, he had bear the brunt of people’s ire over the loss.
But while on the field Dhoni showed his acrobatic skills when a wide ball from Mitchell Santner went to wicketkeeper Glenn Phillips’ hands. Dhoni had stepped out of the crease and Phillips had dislodged the bails. But before he could do that Dhoni had stretched his legs wide, almost in the shape of a perfect split, placing his right leg inside the crease in the nick of time.
Indian cricket fans were awestruck by the move and also said that he could try his hands in Kung Fu after he quits cricket. And the memes poured in.
