MS Dhoni is probably one of the very few trend-setting cricketers. Be it his batting, wicketkeeping or captaincy, many international cricketers like to follow his style and emulate his achievements and style. Beside his achievements as a captain and batsman, his sensational wicketkeeping style has always created massive interest among the fans, especially when it comes to stumpings and run outs. Recently, another cricketer tried to emulate Dhoni’s style while wicketkeeping and was successful too in doing that. The cricketer is none other than the Australia Women wicketkeeper Alyssa Healy, who stunned everyone with her brilliant flick run out during the 7th match of Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) between Sydney Sixers and Brisbane Heat.

Batting first, Brisbane Heat turned up with an awful batting display and off the final delivery of their innings, Healy pulled off a superb run out of Jemma Barsby, who scored 26. Ellyse Perry was the one, who was bowling the last over and sent down a low full toss to Holly Ferling. She flicked towards square leg and tried to collect two runs but ended up taking only single. While the second run was being taken, Healy collected the ball thrown by the fielder far from the stumps and hit back towards the wickets without even taking a glance of it. Ferling, who was running hard to complete the second run, got dismissed by Healy’s throw, which Dhoni has done often in the sport and it has surely became a popular trick for wicketkeepers.

Brisbane Heat could only score 83, which Sydney Sixers chased down pretty easily in 16 overs with 8 wickets left in hand. The trick which Healy used in this game to run out Ferling, recently resurfaced in the news when India’s current Test wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha pulled off a run out in a similar way against New Zealand.
