The recently concluded India’s tour to Sri Lanka helped MS Dhoni to regain his importance to the Indian squad for the contention for the 2019 World Cup.
During the course of the series, MS produced a bunch of memorable moments for his fans. From playing to match-winning innings to taking a nap on the field, Dhoni grabbed a lot of eyeballs during the ODI and T20 series. He crossed several milestones which also includes the record of becoming the first wicketkeeper to effect century of stumpings in ODIs and the other one is that he played in his 300th ODI and set the record for most unbeaten ODI innings as well.
During the only T20I of the tour, Mahi entreated another magical moment that left cricket fans awestruck. Dhoni effected his trademark lightning fast stumping to dismiss Angelo Mathews (7) off Yuzvendra Chahal in the seventh over.

Dhoni’s overwhelming speed meant Mathews failed to make it back into the crease despite his best effort. Indian cricket fans were more than happy using the words ‘lightning quick’ to describe yet another Dhoni stumping. Here are some tweets from Mahi’s fans where hey gave a new name to Dhoni’s stumpings:

Dhoni pulls off a mother of all stumpings. 😱 For a moment, it seemed like Mathews was clean bowled. The time he took was minuscule. 🙌
