MS Dhoni is not just a great captain but his wicket-keeping skills are also quite extraordinary. In yesterday’s match which was played between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Delhi Capitals (DC), Dhoni has one again proved that finding a wicket-keeper of his caliber as replacement is next to impossible.
The match was played at M. A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai, and CSK gave a target of 180 runs to DC. The CSK skipper Dhoni was back in action after taking rest for 2 matches and his knock of 44* (22) was very helpful for his team in putting up a good score on the board.
DC had a bad start to the innings and other than the team’s captain Shreyas Iyer, no other batsman was able to give a fight to CSK bowlers. Dhoni also played an important role in DC’s downfall as he carried out two lightning fast stumpings of Ravindra Jadeja’s bowling. He stumped two important batsmen of DC – Chris Morris and Shreyas Iyer and the manner in which he did it left everyone awestruck.

As you can see, in both the dismissals, the foot of each of the batsmen was in air for just few seconds but even that small duration was more than enough for Dhoni.
Dhoni’s fans went crazy after this match and flooded social media with memes and jokes for praising their favourite cricketer, declaring that he is faster than light.
Here are some of the selected reactions:
