The Mohali ODI was all about the Rohit Sharma carnage. His 208 not out has been the talking point since. But MS Dhoni has a knack of bagging headlines. He took an excellent catch to get rid of Sri Lankan skipper Thisara Perera. Dhoni is amongst the best wicketkeepers in the world. His reputation further excels when he stands up to the spinners. His fast hands have affected some of the most brilliant stumpings. In fact he has 104 stumpings in his ODI career, the most by any wicketkeeper.

Despite all his skills, Dhoni does not have a reputation of being a great diver. On this occasion he made an exception.

Sri Lanka, chasing 392, were 159 for 3 after 30 overs. Yuzvendra Chahal got Asela Gunaratne stumped. It was easy for Dhoni. Thisara started with a boundary and got a single. He was back on strike for the fifth ball. Chahal cramped him for room by bowling on leg and the Sri Lankan skipper, looking to slog sweep, got an inside edge. The ball lobbed up and then…

Dhoni sprinted a few yards before making the dive. Thisara’s battle for the lost cause ended. India won by 141 runs.
