MPL 2019: Shades of MS Dhoni was on display during Match 10 of the ongoing MPL 2019 when SoBo SuperSonics locked horns with Aakash Tigers. It was 35-year-old Subramanian who gave us a glimpse of Dhoni with a couple of stumpings during the match. Playing for the Aakash Tigers, Subramanian affected two slick stumpings to send Jay Bista and Vaibhav Mali packing. The spin of Nehal Katakdhond did the trick. One has to give credit to the speed of Subramanian’s stumping. It was more like a Dhoni stumping, where the ball is collected and without any backward movement, the hands go straight to the stumps to whip off the bails.
Here is the video of the two stumpings:
Meanwhile, SoBo SuperSonics won the game by 10 runs, thanks to Dhrumil Matkar’s three wickets. Earlier, Parag Khanapurkar’s 40-ball 45 helped SuperSonics post 143/6 in their stipulated 20 overs.
SoBo Supersonics: 143/6 (Parag Khanapurkar 45, Khizer Dafedar 33, Nehal Katakdhond 3/17) beat
Aakash Tigers MWS: 133/7 (Aakarshit Gomel 43, Kaustubh Pawar 22, Dhrumil Matkar 3/28)
