Fans may not be impressed with MS Dhoni, the batsman, but there were awe-struck by the wicket-keeper for sure. The 37-year-old Indian wicket-keeper pulled off another beauty from behind the stumps or should we say in front of the stumps?

India after posting a par total was in need of early breakthroughs. Chasing 257, England were 74 for 1 and then came a wicket which will have Hardik Pandya's name by its side but it was surely the veteran's wicket. 

James Vince, who was looking in a good touch, was sent back after failing to get inside the crease before stumps on his end got shattered. 

The throw from Pandya was a misdirected and Dhoni who was standing behind the stumps had to dive, collect the ball and then successfully throw it on the wickets. 

Earlier in the game, Indian captain Virat had scored 71 but England succeeded in restricting India to an ordinary total. The men in blue had to face a series defeat after neither their batting nor bowling could outplay the English men.

Apart from Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan added 44 runs and Dhoni scored 42 off 66 balls. Indian bowlers couldn't only pick up two wickets. Joe Root scored consecutive hundreds in this series. He was supported by captain Eoin Morgan who scored 88 runs even though he was struggling initially.
