Former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni never fails to create awe through his wicket-keeping abilities on the crease. His lighting quick hands stumped New Zealand’s Tim Seifert off the bowling of Kuldeep Yadav during the third and final Twenty20 International at Seddon Park in Hamilton on Sunday.
It might take you several minutes to savour in the fact, but Dhoni did it in less than 1 second.
The dismissal took just 0.099 seconds to effect it as Dhoni removed the bails in a flash.

During Kuldeep’s first over in the game, Seifert had stretched forward to play the googly the Chinaman delivered. However, the 24-year-old Kiwi got beaten outside the edge before Dhoni flipped the bails.
After appealing to the square-leg umpire, the wicket-keeper went on to celebrate his 191st stumping in international cricket with his teammates. 
In a similar attempt, Dhoni had removed New Zealand’s Ross Taylor in the second ODI at Mount Maunganui.

Interestingly, Dhoni holds the record for most number of T20I stumpings. Dhoni also has the most number of dismissals in the format with 89, which also include 55 career catches.

In 337 ODIs, Dhoni has 311 catches and 119 stumpings. There is no other wicketkeeper to match Dhoni’s 524 international matches, as a man behind the stumps.
