Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, its MS Dhoni! The former Indian captain once again displayed why he is still one of the best wicketkeeper of the modern-era courtesy a stunning catch off Sam Curran’s bowling to dismiss the Delhi Capitals skipper in the 19th over.
It all happened on the last ball of the 19th over when MS Dhoni dived full-strength on his right to rewind back the clock to the good old days, leaving his fans on social media in nostalgia.
MS Dhoni had a brilliant day behind the wickets on Friday. Besides taking a brilliant catch to dismiss Shreyas Iyer, Dhoni effected a brilliant stumping of Prithvi Shaw of the bowling of Piyush Chawla.
Delhi Capitals eventually finished with 3-175 in 20 overs and it will be interesting to see if Dhoni can emulate his keeping exploits when he comes out to bat.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to MS Dhoni’s stunning catch-
