2nd ODI India vs Australia Adelaide: Australian wicketkeeper Alex Carey tried to do an MS Dhoni from behind the stumps when India captain Virat Kohli late cut Nathan Lyon but failed miserably as the ball went past him. Carey tried to raise his leg towards his right where Kohli was looking to place it, the ball missed the keeper as it went for a boundary. It is one of the many skills MS Dhoni has in his arsenal behind the stumps. In the meanwhile, Kohli went onto smash his 39th Test century which came in a 299 chase in the 2nd ODI with the team needing a win to level the series.
Here is the video:
Dhoni has inspired many cricketers and wicketkeepers around the world and Carey is just an addition to that list.
Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan have reached another landmark as they together cross 4000-run mark as a pair in ODIs. They are the fourth opening pair to achieve the feat, taking just 90 innings at an average of over 45. The Indian duo becomes the second opening combination and fourth overall to score 4000 runs as a partnership.
Australia scored 93 off the last ten overs as Shaun Marsh hit a brilliant 131 as Maxwell chipped in with a quickfire 48 off 37 balls. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was the pick of the bowlers as he scalped four wickets as Shami picked three.
