MS Dhoni stumps Tim Seifert off Kuldeep Yadav: The Indian wicket-keeper affected an praiseworthy stumping against New Zealand.
During the third T20I of the ongoing India’s tour of New Zealand at Hamilton, former India captain and current wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni affected a brilliant stumping to send back New Zealand opening batsman Tim Seifert after he and Colin Munro had stitched together an 80-run opening stand.
The dismissal came as a respite for the visitors who had initially failed to restrict the opposition batsmen. Having scored 66 in the first six overs, New Zealand were provided with a start which had it in it to aid them to post a formidable total.
Earlier, India captain Rohit Sharma had won the toss and chose to field in the deciding T20I. Making a solitary change to their playing XI, India swapped their wrist-spinners as Kuldeep Yadav was included in Yuzvendra Chahal’s place.

India got their first dismissal on the fourth delivery of the eight over when Kuldeep Yadav beat Seifert outside the off-stump. Having missed the delivery altogether, Seifert did he best to bring his back foot inside the crease before Dhoni whipped the bails.
In which was a close call, third umpire Chris Brown ruled the decision in India’s favour. Seifert ended up scoring 43 (25) with the help of three fours and three sixes. It is Kuldeep Yadav’s wicket-keeping ability which had allured a lot of comments regarding him playing this match.
