The critics say that he should retire from the limited overs format as he has lost his charm, however, until he is behind the stumps with his wicket-keeping gloves, he will keep on performing for the team. Yes, we are talking about the best wicket-keeper of the modern era, Mahendra Singh Dhoni whose intelligence is inevitable. Be it guiding the young wrist spinners to clinch a wicket or his helping Virat Kohli to set the field placement, he cannot be simply overlooked. And in the final ODI of the 5-match series against Australia, once again he stunned his lightning-fast response behind the wickets.
It was the 36th over of the Australian innings when Kuldeep Yadav came into the attack and Travis Head had the strike. Kuldeep tossed up the ball a bit and gave it enough flight. As soon as the ball touched the ground it bounced high but Dhoni kept an eye on the ball and grabbed it at its height despite falling on the later after being off-balanced.
