It is a known fact that MS Dhoni barely shows any emotion on the field. One of the best players to have ever graced the sport observes the game and makes smarty moves. Be it behind the stumps or at the crease.
New Zealand were seriously into the run-chase and came very close to chasing down the target set by India and winning their first ever bilateral ODI series in this country.
The Black Caps went about their business and tackled the Indian bowlers right from the word go and came quite so close to the target set up by the Indians.
When 26 runs were required off the last 14 balls, the game seemed more like New Zealand’s to lose given the quality of batters at the crease.
Jasprit Bumrah was given the ball to do the business in the death overs. His fantastic delivery outsmarted de Grandhomme which in turn the ball made its way back to MS Dhoni’s hands.
At the initial attempt, there were a bit of juggle in MSD’s hands then he threw the ball straight to Jasprit Bumrah.
Bumrah knew that the set batsman Tom Latham was way short of his crease as Latham ran half of the pitch only to be sent back by his partner.
Bumrah who had the sleeker alternative to run and whip the bails off, went straight at the stumps at the drop of the hat.
After pressing so well, India wrapped up a 2-1 series win over the Black Caps. Indian bowlers pulled off something that seemed improbable right at the death.
MS Dhoni who was involved in the build-up to the game-changing run-out was seen with a grim face. Smiling, he suggested Bumrah that he should have gotten closer to the wicket before hitting the stumps.
The similar situation occurred in January during the deciding T20I series against England when the same Jasprit Bumrah made MS Dhoni burst into laughter after he threw the ball straight onto the stumps despite having all time to go near to the stumps and finish it off.
