MS Dhoni stumps Keemo Paul in an unbelievable 0.08 seconds


MS Dhoni stumps Keemo Paul in an unbelievable 0.08 seconds

MS Dhoni might be failing with the bat this season, but what makes the former skipper indispensable is his lightning speed behind the wicket. Dhoni has many-a-times helped India with his stumpings and did so again in the fourth ODI between India and West Indies at the Brabourne Stadium, stumping out Keemo Paul in 0.08 seconds.

The stumping happened in the 28th over, which was being bowled by Ravindra Jadeja. Interestingly, even Jadeja did not notice the stumping because it happened so fast. Paul was batting on 19 when he went slightly away from the crease, trying to hit the ball. He missed and within 0.08 seconds, Dhoni managed to knock off the bails, walking towards Jadeja with a smile.

But Dhoni has been excluded from the squad for the T20I series against WI and Australia. The selectors want to train either DK or Pant as the second wicket-keeper.

MS Dhoni still remains the sharpest behind the wickets, but what may be a reason of worry is his slump in batting form. Notably, in 2018, MS averages 25.00 in 13 ODI innings. In T20Is, he has scored 123 runs in 5 innings. In 2018, Dhoni has been a part of seven T20Is and he will not get much game-time before ODIs against Aussies.
