Mahendra Singh Dhoni has found a lot of batsmen short of their crease in the world cricket. Over the years, he has affected successful stumpings with differences of millimeter and milli seconds. With the bat in his hand, Dhoni is one of the quickest runners in between the wickets.
But who would have imagined that Dhoni himself will be struggling with the same millimiter and the same milli second. Who would have imagined the quickest runner in the world diving around to reach the crease?
In last night’s match between Delhi Daredevils and Rising Pune Supergiant, Pune required 38 runs to win from the last three overs. With Manoj Tiwary and Dhoni on the crease, the target was well within the bounds of possibility. Supergiant received a huge blow on the third delivery of the 18th over when Dhoni was run-out by Mohammed Shami. Yes. Dhoni was run-out. Didn’t see that since ages? Neither did we.
Shami, who was fielding at short fine leg, attempted a direct throw in a bid to dismiss Dhoni and was successful at the non-striker’s end. Dhoni did not realise where the ball had travelled and was further not aware that the ball was being thrown at his end. As soon as he realised the whole situation, he dived full length, but to no effect. Watch the full video:
