RANCHI: Indian skipper Mahendara Singh Dhoni is unarguably one of the smartest and shrewdest cricketers of all time.
His brilliance in the field with bat and specially his wicket-keeping skills have enormously improved match after match.
Dhoni invariably comes up with something which outfoxes the opposition completely and leaves them gasping. Another such incident came to the fore on Wednesday during the fourth One-Day International (ODI) between India and New Zealand at his hometown Ranchi.
The incident happened during the 46th over of the New Zealand innings being bowled by Umesh Yadav. Ross Taylor, who has struggled throughout the India tour, was in the middle with Anton Devcich. A swinging delivery by the Indian pacer was played by Taylor towards the fine leg boundary where Dhawal Kulkarni was stationed.

Taylor opted for the second run, sensing Dhawal’s throw will take enough time to reach Dhoni allowing him a couple of runs. The throw was not special, but Dhoni, who was standing in front of the stumps, collected it and without looking back deflected the ball on to the stumps.
