MS Dhoni is in news after being dropped from India's T20I side. He will not feature in the 20-over series against West Indies and Australia. Fans were disheartened after they got to know about the news. But some happiness for die-hard Dhoni fans after watching his catch against Windies during the third ODI in Pune.
Dhoni had to give his 200% to dismiss Chandrapaul Hemraj. The 37-year-old Indian wicket-keeper jumped like a 20-year-old in the air and took the catch after running back which is never easy for any fielder. The ball didn't come out even when Dhoni's elbow hit the ground.
The bowler was Jasprit Bumrah who got Hemraj after the West Indies batsman mistimed a pull.
Twitter was awe-struck seeing the senior Indian cricketer pulling off a stunning catch.
Here is how Twitterati reacted:
