Asia Cup 2018: Twitter in awe of MS Dhoni for his DRS call against Pakistan

Posted On / /

In the Super Four stage match of the Asia Cup 2018 between India and Pakistan in Dubai on Sunday, cricket fans were treated to a familiar sight.

Leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, bowling his first over of the match, made an appeal for leg before wicket against Pakistan opener Imam-ul-haq. The umpire did not hesitate in giving it not-out as the batsman had a huge stride forward and the bat was awfully close to the pad. In real time, it seemed like a fair call by the Sri Lankan umpire Ruchira Palliyaguruge.

But Indian wicket-keeper MS Dhoni had other ideas. With Chahal making a strong appeal, Dhoni looked in the direction of skipper Rohit Sharma and gave a gentle nod. It came in a quick time. and there was no hesitation.

And after watching at the replays, TV umpire made the decision. ‘Three reds’ on the tracker and no inside edge. Imam had to walk back. Dhoni, as he often is, was spot on.

Sunil Gavaskar, who was on air at that moment, couldn’t stop gushing. “What a genius that man is MSD. He is just incredible,” the former India captain said.

Twitter was also filled with — as you’d expect — comments about ‘Dhoni Review System’.

Here are some of the best Twitter reactions to that moment of magic by Dhoni:
