MS Dhoni fans and supporters blew away social media Friday evening when the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced India’s Twenty20 International (T20I) squad for the West Indies and Australia series which did not include Dhoni’s name.
Dhoni, who has played 93 off India’ 103 T20Is, was dropped from the side and this didn’t go well with the Indian fans, who by now are not used to watching an Indian limited-overs team without their former skipper.
Although there still is no clarity on whether Dhoni was actually rested or ignored for the next two T20I series, Dhoni blew away everyone’s mind on Saturday with a blinder catch in the third ODI against West Indies in Pune.
Returning bowler, Bumrah bowler a short bouncer to Windies’ Hemraj, who instead of leaving it, tried to play it but ended up getting a top-edge and the ball went high in the air.
While the ball looked to land in a no-man’s land in front of fine leg but India’s former skipper had other ideas. He sprinted towards it and dived full stretch to bag a stunning catch and ensured India’s first wicket in the sixth over.
