WATCH Dhoni’s wicket-keeping skills at display yet again

Veteran Indian wicketkeeper MS Dhoni displayed his excellent wicket keeping skills yet again on Sunday which reminded viewers of his incredible run out dismissal in the 2016 Asia Cup. CSK is facing Punjab Kings at the Brabourne Stadium in the ongoing 15th IPL season.

The 40-year-old defied age to show incredible athleticism and lightning quick reflexes to dismiss Bhanuka Rajapaksa in the game.

It was in the second over of the game after CSK won the toss and put PBKS to bat first. Rajapaksa pushed the delivery from Chris Jordan towards the left of the bowler and took off for a single. However, a horrible mix-up with Shikhar Dhawan left him stranded at half-way point in the pitch.

Jordan collected the ball and quickly threw it down to striker’s end while Dhoni ran in time, made a full-length dive, collected the ball and under armed it to the stumps as he was still far from the wickets. The replay showed Rajapaksa was well outside the crease as PBKS lost their second wicket in just six balls.

Dhoni has been having an incredible start to his IPL 2022 season. He has returned to his vintage self with the bat, scoring a blitzkrieg half-century in the first game against Kolkata Knight Riders and a blazing 6-ball 16 against Lucknow Super Giants where he scored a first-ball six for the first time in his IPL career.
