Mahendra Singh Dhoni hardly spares a batsman who steps out of the crease and misses the ball. His lightning-fast stumpings have helped the Indian bowlers to earn a wicket. He also holds the record for the most number of stumpings in ODIs. However, in the India vs Australia 2nd T20I in Guwahati, Dhoni was bamboozled by the Australian leggie Adam Zampa and was stumped out by Tim Paine. Surprisingly, MS Dhoni was stumped for the first time in his 80-match Twenty20 International career.
The incident happened in the 10th over of the India needed a strong partnership. MS Dhoni, who came into bat at number 6, had the strike. The ball bowled by Zampa spun and bounced while Dhoni stepped down the crease to hit it big. Unfortunately, there was no contact between bat and the ball while Aussie wicket-keeper Tim Paine did no mistake to grab it and dislodge the bail.

MS Dhoni ended up scoring 13 runs off 16 balls including just a boundary.
Earlier Australian stand-in skipper David Warner won the toss and asked the Indian team to bat first. Aussie speedster Jason Behrendorff bowled a phenomenal spell and managed to take 4 important wickets in just the 2nd T20I of his career. He removed the top 4 batsmen including openers Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan then Virat Kohli and Manish Pandey.
Towards the end, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya played some good cricket but no Indian player could stand long and anchor the inning. Indian tailenders put some good efforts towards the end and India could manage to put 118 runs on the board after losing all 10 wickets.
