MS Dhoni’s smartness to run-out James Neesham wins hearts of Twitterati




MS Dhoni, James Neesham

India missed the services of MS Dhoni in the fourth ODI against New Zealand at Hamilton when the visitor’s batting line-up imploded under swing-friendly conditions.

However, Dhoni was back for the fifth and final ODI at Wellington and was lightning fast as usual behind the stumps. He also assisted stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma in setting the field positions and guiding the spinners.

In the 37th over of New Zealand’s innings, Dhoni’s smartness came to the fore when he ran out James Neesham during their 253-run chase.

Neesham missed a flighted delivery bowled by Kedar Jadhav and it hit him on the back pad. Indian players appealed in unison but umpire said not-out as the impact was outside off. The ball was deflected behind the stumps and the Kiwi all-rounder came out of his crease having no idea where the ball was.

Dhoni was quick to react to the situation; he immediately picked up the ball and hit the stumps directly. Umpire then referred it to the third umpire and replay showed that Neesham was well short to make his ground.

The brilliance of Dhoni also left the Twitterati in awe.
