It is always delighting to see a ‘classic’ MS Dhoni stumping in any match he plays. In another instance, the wicketkeeper was seen involved in a lightning-quick stumping, this time to dismiss Ross Taylor during India vs New Zealand 2nd ODI match at Bay Oval. The third umpire took little to conclude that the explosive Kiwi batsman was indeed out!
The dismissal took place in the 18th over, which was also Kedar Jadhav’s first over in the match. Just as it seemed that Ross Taylor and Tom Latham would take the game away from India, Virat Kohli made a bowling change and introduced Jadhav. Taylor failed to read the line of the ball and was eventually stumped.

MS Dhoni, you genius! The fastest gloves in the business, without a doubt. Ross Taylor had his feet in the air just for a second, Dhoni whipped the bails off. Jadhav gets the wicket, but really, it's all MSD. pic.twitter.com/j5HQLngSsz

India is 1-0 ahead in the 5-match ODI series, and given how the proceedings in the second ODI in Mount Maunganui, they will soon be 2-0 up. The spinners, in particular, wreaked havoc in Kiwis' batting line-up and they were playing on 202/8 when the reports last came in.
