Lightning brilliance of former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni behind the wickets is not any new thing, but he never stops to amaze us with his upgraded skills.
He never fails to amaze us with his stumping and always stands on the spot to justify his reputation as one of the best wicketkeepers in the world. What he did in the 3rd ODI between India and Sri Lanka at Visakhapatnam was a sheer brilliance of him.
When the Sri Lankan batsmen were dominating the game and it was becoming difficult for ‘Men In Blue ‘ to win the match easily, Dhoni pulled off a sharp stumping and remove Upul Tharanga who was batting on 95 to make the game one sided. The left-handed batsman Upul Tharanga was hitting all around the field, he hit 12 fours and three sixes, but was beaten by a sharp delivery from Kuldeep Yadav with Dhoni taking off the bails in a flash of light. Sri Lankan team that was set to make a huge total score eventually wrapped out of 215 after Tharanga.
Many Indian cricket fans felt that it was Dhoni’s flash of brilliance that turned the tables around.

If you understand cricket even a little bit, you would know that Sri Lanka lost to Dhoni’s stumping. #IndvSL

After an amazing comeback from the bowlers, the Indian batting did not failed to spread its magic and opener Shikhar Dhawan’s heated century helped the team India to make a clear eight-wicket win over the Sri Lankan team.
