MS Dhoni stumping

The third and final T20I against New Zealand in Hamilton was not at all going according to plan as far as India captain Rohit Sharma was concerned. The Kiwis were plundering runs and were 80 for no loss in the 8th over.

Tim Seifert was on 43 and in front of him was Kuldeep Yadav, playing his first match of the series. MS Dhoni comes into the picture and asserts his legacy as one of the best wicket-keepers in the world. In less than 0.10 seconds, Dhoni sends New Zealand's Tim Seifert back to the pavilion from a wrong one by Kuldeep.

Dhoni's brilliant skills and amazing reflexes gave India the much-needed breakthrough as he caught Seifert almost an inch short of the crease. It was clear from the TV replays that no part of Seifert's foot was inside the crease and as soon as Dhoni inflicted the stumping, he knew he had got his man.

MS Dhoni has mastered the skills of stumping. For someone whose keeping skills did not impress many when he started his career, the former Indian captain can rarely do anything wrong behind the wickets at present.
