Twitter bows down to MS Dhoni as he stumps Ross Taylor in less than a second

The master of the stumping in international cricket, MS Dhoni was at it once again at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui in the second ODI against New Zealand.

Chasing 325 to level the series, the Blackcaps were in a spot of bother when they lost Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson in the first powerplay. Colin Munro was soon back in the hut too when the spinners came on, and that left a lot of pressure on the in-form batsmen Ross Taylor and Tom Latham.

But Taylor had no answer to a moment of magic from the Indian wicket-keeper.

With Kedar Jadhav pushing one through that didn’t turn, Taylor’s outside edge was beaten. As he had overbalanced even so lightly, his back-foot was out off the crease for just a brief moment.

A matter of milliseconds and that’s all it took for Dhoni to whip the bails off.

However, the best moment came when the 37-year-old was quick to appeal for the stumps and remained confident that he has got his man, despite the rest of the Indian team remaining skeptical about it. The replays, though, confirmed Dhoni’s suspicion, as the Indian camp celebrated the big dismissal.
