MS Dhoni was quick as lightning during the 1st ODI to stump Peter Handscomb of Kuldeep Yadav during at Hyderabad. Kuldeep bowled it slower through the air and deceived the batsman in the flight. A flighted away-drifting delivery that dipped and turned past the inside edge of Handscomb. The right-hander chipped down the track and was nowhere close to the pitch of the ball. The ball turned through the gap between bat-pad. MS Dhoni does the rest. It was the 37-year-old’s 120th stumping in ODI cricket. Handscomb departed for 19 off 30 balls, leaving Australia in trouble after winning the toss and opting to bat first.
Here is the video:
At the time of filing the copy, Australia was 164/4 in 34 overs. Dangerous Maxwell and Turner are there in the middle with a task at hand. Earlier in the day, Australia got off to a woeful start as they lost their captain Aaron Finch for a duck. Meanwhile, KL Rahul does not find a spot after a good T20I series, Ambati Rayudu seems to be the one being trusted at the 4 spot. Yuzvendra Chahal has been rested as Jadeja, Kuldeep find spots. Pant too does not find a place.
India seems to be persisting with the ploy of experimenting to finalise the World Cup squad.
