MSD is usually referred as Mahendra Singh Dhoni but if there is a language in cricket for wicketkeeping, it would be referred as Mahendra ‘Smart’ Dhoni. How many times we have seen his majesty behind the stumps. Yet, he comes up with a unique effort every single time.

Now, Indian fielding coach, R Sridhar showers words of praises on MS Dhoni for his unique way of work behind the wicket and he wants to make a research on MS Dhoni’s glovework. Sridhar added that he wants to name it as ”The Mahi Way”. He feels that his skill is hard to acquire and a distant dream for the youngsters.

“Dhoni has got his own style, which is so successful for him. I think we can do a research on his style of wicketkeeping and I would like to call it ‘The Mahi Way’. There are so many things to learn from that and so many things that other young keepers may not even be able to contemplate. He is unique in his own way and that is exactly how cricketers should be ‘unique in their own way’,” R Sridhar quoted.

“He has got great hands. He has definitely the best gloveman as far as keeping for spinners goes. His hands work at the speed of lightning, for stumpings we all know that. That is something which is very innate to him and great to watch. At the same time, for somebody who doesn’t have that skill, it’s a big challenge to get there,” he added further praising Dhoni in his recent chat.

However, it would be interesting if someone really makes a research on MS Dhoni’s wicketkeeping which will be a perfect guide for the youngsters to pull off some smart stumpings and never forget about his unique way of leaving the ball while effecting a run-out.

Coming to ongoing series status, the victory at Wanderers kept the hosts, South Africans alive in the series after losing first three games. With the 2 games to finish the series, the home side would love to seal the deal in order to share the cup. Meanwhile, the visitors, Indians are eyeing for the historical series win at any cost.
