WATCH: MS Dhoni stretches 2.14 metres to save his wicket

India veteran MS Dhoni is not only one of the fittest cricketers in the world but also among the most flexible ones to grace the field and it became evident once again during the second T20I against Australia in Bengaluru on Wednesday.

In the 11th over of the match, Dhoni advanced to Adam Zampa, who threw the wide. But Dhoni was quick to get back as Peter Handscomb took off the bails in a flash. The Aussie players made a loud appeal with Dhoni’s backfoot planted on the crease as he stretched full length to get back.


Replays showed that Dhoni made the crease in time. He stretched a whopping 2.14 metres to get back in the crease and foil Handscomb’s stumping attempt.

This was not the first time that the former India captain has shown his flexibility. Dhoni stretched his backfoot back in the crease for the first time during a T20I against New Zealand in 2017. Back then, the bowler was left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner.

Meanwhile, after facing a close defeat in Visakhapatnam, India came out firing on all cylinders in the second encounter at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Nevertheless, a hurricane by the name of Glenn Maxwell authoritatively blew the Men in Blue away by seven wickets.

Subsequently, Australia also clinched the two-match series 2-0. The series defeat is also Virat Kohli’s first on home soil.
