Even after affecting hundreds of stumping during his illustrious career, India’a ace wicketkeeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni could not do much except seeing Tim Paine dislodging the bails in the ongoing second T20 International in Guwahati.
After being asked to bat first, India were rocked by Jason Behrendorff‘s four-wicket spell and were reeling at 27 for 4 before Kedar Jadhav and Dhoni steadied the ship by adding 33 runs for the fifth wicket. However, just when it looked that the duo had got things under control, a lapse in concentration brought an end to the promising stand. When Adam Zampa came to bowl the 10th over, Dhoni made it clear that he would target the leg-spinner as he tried to step out on the very first ball he faced.
The second ball was hit for a four by the former India skipper before he stepped out twice on successive deliveries without any success. However, another attempt to dance down the track turned out to be fatal as Dhoni was completely beaten by turn and bounce.
The 36-year old used his feet again but Zampa cleverly dropped the ball short. As a result, Dhoni couldn’t get to the pitch of the ball and because of the turn, he failed to make any contact as the ball spun past his defense. The ball went straight to Tim Paine and he did not waste any time in dislodging the bails.
Here is a clip of that dismissal:
