Indian wicket-keeper MS Dhoni took a stunning one-handed flying catch in the World Cup 2019 league match against West Indies on Thursday.
In the 27th over of the Windies chase, Jasprit Bumrah bowled a back of a length delivery coming into the all-rounder Carlos Braithwaite before straightening. The batsman closed the face of his willow into the leg-side and therefore the outside edge flew to the right of Dhoni, who like Brathwaite was going with the angle and was left wrong-footed. But MSD adjusted quickly to dive to his right and grabbed the ball with one-hand.
India vice-captain Rohit Sharma was awestruck by Dhoni’s amazing dive as his reaction after the catch said it all.
