Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper, MS Dhoni is one of the legendary figures in the cricket world and he often finds a way of leaving his fans awestruck with magnificent glovework behind the stumps. The wicketkeeper-batter added one more to the list of his memorable actions on the field dismissing Adam Zampa with a flick of a hand.

Rajasthan Royals’ batters displayed some brilliant strokeplay in the first innings after being asked to bat first as they posted an above-par score of 175/8 and it was a treat for the viewers. However, just like a delicious meal, that ends with a tasty dessert, MS Dhoni decided to sign off the innings with a memorable activity that will send the spectators into awe.

It was the final ball of the 20th over and Adam Zampa decided to play an adventurous shot as he played a scoop on a slower ball from Tushar Deshpande. The ball sailed straight into the hands of Maheesh Theekshana but the spinner dropped a sitter. The batters then decided to go for the second run after completing a single but the Sri Lankan cricketer was quick to throw the ball toward MS Dhoni.

The CSK skipper then collected the ball and pulled off one of his special moves by aiming at the stumps with a backhand flick.

Here is the video of the flick run-out by MS Dhoni:
