Team India locked horns with the Netherlands at the Sydney Cricket Ground in the Super 12 stage of the T20 World Cup 2022. Alongside his excellent leadership skills, MS Dhoni was known for his brilliant wicket-keeping skills. When Dinesh Karthik missed an easy stumping to dismiss Colin Ackermann, fans began chanting ‘Dhoni-Dhoni’ at SCG.

Chasing 180, the Netherlands failed to shift the gear against India on Thursday as they could only manage 36/2 at the end of seven overs, with Colin Ackermann and Bas de Leede in the middle.

In the eighth over, bowled by Axar Patel, de Leede tried to increase the momentum. He saw the left-arm spinner bowling a tossed-up delivery outside the off stump and came down the pitch for a big slog. However, the Dutch failed to make any connection with the ball as it floated to Dinesh Karthik.

Dinesh Karthik had a golden opportunity, but he failed to collect the ball completely, resulting in an unfortunate miss. Indian fans who were at the stadium immediately started chanting MS Dhoniโ€™s name following Karthikโ€™s silly mistake behind the wicket. Dhoni, who has inspired legions of followers, rarely missed any stumping chances during his playing days for India, and his name being chanted out of nowhere is no longer a surprise.

Here is the video of the incident:
