Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s wicket-keeping heroics can’t be taken lightly until he is behind the stumps donning the Indian blue jersey. For the third time in a row, he designed the roadmap to dismiss one of the dangerous batsmen Glenn Maxwell and assisted Yuzvendra Chahal to take his wicket. After Kolkata ODI, Chahal’s spin and Dhoni’s lightning fast stumping yet again bamboozled Maxwell in the third match at the Holkar Stadium, Indore on September 24.

In the 43rd over, the Aussies were reduced to 243/3. Chahal came into the bowling attack while Maxwell had the strike. Following Dhoni’s instruction, Chahal started the over with a delivery which went a bit away from the off stump after hitting the ground. Maxwell went down the line to go for a biggie but once again missed it. Dhoni rapidly grabbed the ball and dislodged the bails within no time. Maxwell couldn’t return back in the crease and lost his wicket after scoring 5 runs off 13 balls.

This is for the third time in the series that Chahal took Maxwell’s wicket and provided the much-needed breakthrough in the middle of the match.
Earlier today, Steve Smith won the toss and opted to bat first. The Aussies had a superb start as their top-order performed phenomenally. Aaron Finch hit his second ODI ton against India while David Warner and skipper Steven Smith got their respective half-centuries. Post 40 overs, the wrist spinners made a superb comeback where Kuldeep Yadav took the wickets of Aaron Finch and Steven Smith after they had added 152 runs for the 2nd wicket.
Soon after Smith’s dismissal, the middle order lost the run-scoring momentum and the Aussies could put 293 runs on the scoreboard after the end of 50 overs.
