Mahi magic: Dhoni’s ‘blind’ run-out to dismiss Ross Taylor is a delight to watch

India’s limited-overs captain M S Dhoni is well-known for his skills behind the wicket. A simple YouTube search for ‘quickest stumping ever’ shows atleast twenty different videos which exhibits his magic with the glove.

On Wednesday, his role behind the stumps was put to test again and the 35-year-old gloveman passed with flying colours proving his mettle once again.

In the 46th over, Yadav was bowling to an out-of-form Ross Taylor, who was gearing up for the last-few-over-fireworks to take New Zealand to a decent total.

Taylor swung his bat and the ball raced towards fine leg. Dhawal Kulkarni put in a commendable dive and sent the ball back in a flash to Dhoni, who was still walking towards the wicket.

The ball landed awkwardly and Dhoni in one quick motion half-collected, half-deflected the ball onto the stumps without looking at the wickets.

Taylor who was attempting the second run had to take the long walk back.
