When you hear a crisp sound behind the stumps, one might wonder that the wicket-keeper who is keeping the wickets must have whipped the bails off in an attempt to outsmart the batsman just in case if the batsman is inches short of making the crease after failing to click the knock off the bowler and that’s every wicket-keeper do which is the basic rule of cricket.
But, at the same time, when you hear the same sound in the twinkling of an eye, one can surely say that MS Dhoni is the only one who can do the fastest stumping than any other wicket-keeper on the cricketing planet without the shadow of any doubt in the minds.
Even when you take glimpses at the slow motion of MS Dhoni’s clips of stumping scenes, you still get beaten by MS Dhoni’s killer pace movement in knocking the bails off as he has got that truckload of experience when it comes to wicket-keeping attributes.
During the IPL match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rising Pune Supergiant, MS Dhoni once again shot into the limelight with his typical fastest stumping characteristics that came in a much-needed situation as Dhoni’s extravaganza behind the stumps did the trick.
AB de Villiers scored 29 runs off 30 which is a bit slow to his reputed standards and was desperately waiting to launch some rockets into the orbit. While attempting to do so off Imran Tahir’s bowling, AB shimmied down the track only to be stumped by MS Dhoni.
This is obviously one of the fastest stumpings in IPL cricket history and the credits goes to MS Dhoni for doing such a phenomenal job quickly. Had any other wicket-keeper whipped the bails off with the speed that they got, they would still get beaten by the pace of MS Dhoni.
