MS Dhoni is probably the greatest stumper alive in the history of cricket. The quickness of his hands behind the stumps is just too good and it barely gives the batsmen a chance to return to the crease after inching out of it.
We saw an example of it in the final of the Asia Cup 2018 when MS Dhoni stumped a well-settled Liton Das before he took off in the last 10 overs of the Bangladesh innings. Liton had single-handedly set up Bangladesh for a late charge with a sublime 121 off 116 balls with 12 fours and 2 sixes.
Just when Bangladesh was supposed to tee off for the target score of 260-270, Rohit brought on Kuldeep Yadav and he brought his magical wrong’un with him. It turned away from Liton enough to entice him outside the crease and the time was enough to MS Dhoni to whip off the bails.
The third umpire was called on to decide and though it looked like there was a speckle of the foot behind the return crease, the umpire ruled him out and Liton returned to the pavilion.
