Blink and you’ll miss it! In cricket, this is what stumping is all about. MS has the most successful wicket in the Indian Premier League, and he owns the record for the quickest stumping at only 0.08 seconds.
He is the most electric guy behind the wickets in global cricket. While many wikis find it difficult, he constantly catches the ball near the off-pole. In 2018, Dhoni’s lightning-fast stumping of 0.08 seconds captivated the world’s attention. He stumped the West Indies’ Keemo Paul in an ODI in Mumbai, making the whole globe cheer. Dhoni was very quick to remove the bails before Keemo Paul could process them.
He displayed a comparable glimpse of such a beautiful attitude during India’s visit to Australia in 2012, when Mitchell Marsh faced leg-spinner Rahul Sharma. With 0.09 seconds of stumping time, Dhoni cleared the way for Marsh to the pavilion. This is the second-fastest stumping record in the world. Dhoni’s timing improved in 2018.
Although the batter must concentrate on striking the ball, the keeper must concentrate even more on catching it. He must strike first, before the batter. It is a difficult endeavour that demands complete concentration and attention on the pitch in order to retrieve a wicket. Stumping is a skill that requires talent, quickness, and adaptability. As a result, wicketkeepers are among the most vigilant players on the cricket pitch.
