Twitter went berserk when MS Dhoni effected the stumping of Glenn Maxwell who was looking dangerous at the crease. After having hit Kuldeep Yadav for two consecutive sixes, India tried to slow him down. As the pressure started to increase, Maxwell, as usual, tried to do something extraordinary.
He charged down but was beaten in the air as the ball sneaked through his legs. Dhoni held on the ball and hit the stumps at lightning speed as usual. Yuzvendra Chahal got Maxwell’s wicket for the second consecutive time as Virat Kohli and Co burst into celebrations.
The Indian wicketkeeper is known for his speedy glove work behind the stumps and today’s stumping was yet another masterpiece by the legend. He recently became the first-ever wicketkeeper to effect 100 stumpings in One Day Internationals.
Earlier in the day, Australia despite some sensational fifties by the duo of Ajinkya Rahane and Virat Kohli managed to restrict India to 252. The visitors who were chasing a target of 253 runs were welcomed with a solid spell of swing bowling by the Indian new bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah. Both seemed unplayable as Hilton Cartwright and David Warner fell prey to Bhuvneshwar leaving Australia reeling at 9/2. That’s when skipper Steve Smith and Travis Head rescued the Aussies from a poor start.
Head soon got out and in came the Big Show. Like the last game, he again decided to go after Kuldeep as he smashed him for consecutive sixes. However, Chahal bowled cleverly to him as he got the better of Maxwell again like the last game. Dhoni’s work behind the stumps deserved equal credit.
Twitter was filled with some splendid reactions regarding the Dhoni stumping. While people applauded his consistency behind the stumps, others termed him as unbelievable.
Here are some of the amazing Twitter reactions lauding Dhoni’s stumping:

Dhoni is quick behind the wickets. Between the wickets. And in picking the wickets after victory.

Main reason I like 2 spinners operating together is that Dhoni is up at the stumps, and close to the microphone???
