MS Dhoni returned as captain of the Chennai Super Kings for their crucial match against the Delhi Capitals. Besides scoring a quickfire 44 runs off 22 deliveries, Dhoni was involved in two exceptional stumpings.
Chris Morris with a turning delivery and although the batman’s foot was in the air for a very short amount of time, Dhoni whipped the balls off in a flash to complete a brilliant dismissal.
DC had a bad start to the innings and other than the team’s captain Shreyas Iyer, no other batsman was able to give a fight to CSK bowlers. Dhoni also played the important role in DC’s downfall as he carried out two lightning fast stumpings of Ravindra Jadeja’s bowling. He stumped two important batsmen of DC Chris Morris and Shreyas Iyer and the manner in which he did it left everyone awestruck.

The foot of each of the batsmen was in the air for just few seconds but even that small duration was more than enough for Dhoni.
After seeing this, Dhoni’s fans went crazy after this match and flooded social media with memes and jokes for praising their favourite cricketer, declaring that he is faster than light.
