MSD Top 10 Moments

10) smartest wicket Keeping
VIVO IPL8, Punjab vs Pune Match, April 18, 2016
The incident happened in the 9th over the match. KXIP batsman Manan Vohra was batting and he looked to guide a ball by left-arm spinner Ankit Sharma down the third man. Since Dhoni’s hands were behind the ball to collect it if the batsman missed or edged the ball, he stuck out his right leg to stop the shot and prevented it from running to the boundary.
It was a brilliant display of anticipation and presence of mind that saved four runs for his team.
9) Dhoni shows off his football skills again
Apr 22, 2016 – VIVO IPL 2016, RPS vs RCB
Dhoni’s snazzy football skills made a reappearance on Friday night. After Virat Kohli played a similar late dab off R Ashwin, Dhoni pulled off a similar save, lifting his right leg and stopping the ball with his pad.
He then flashed a big smile at Kohli.
8) Bringing his street-smart side
Mahendra Singh Dhoni kept for a few deliveries without pads as he gave his gear to Ajinkya Rahane standing at silly mid-off against Ravichandran Ashwin in the World Cup match against West Indies.
It was one of the rarest of instances, when a wicketkeeper kept wickets without wearing the protection for legs. For four deliveries, Dhoni was without pads as he gave his to Rahane fielding at silly point.
7) The 183 smash

298 looked a massive total when the chase started.But thanks to some scintillating stroke play from Dhoni India have reached the target in just 46.1 overs.
Dravid took a gamble by sending in Dhoni and he hit the jackpot. This now is the highest score by a wicket-keeper in ODIs beating Gilchrist’s 172!
6) Dhoni blasts Chennai to semi-finals

After 39.5 overs of a game that swung from one extreme to the other.Dhoni collected the ball, sprinted towards the wickets and threw them down.Dhoni beat both Mustafizur and Bangladesh by just a few inches, perhaps centimetres.
Well that one hand without glove for the final ball should be remembered in History as “Hand of God” in Cricket.
4) Dhoni’s “Flash” stumping
India vs Bangladesh, WorldCup T20 2016, March 24, 2016
Perhaps this must be the turning point of the match.

1) It Began Here
ICC World Twenty20, Final: India v Pakistan at Johannesburg, Sep 24, 2007
Over the years, Mahendra Singh Dhoni has become an enigma, and more often than not, whatever he has touched has turned into gold. Today, we all know that the Indian skipper trusts his instinct under precarious circumstances, and it all began in the final of inagural edition of the ICC World T20, where he asked an unheralded Joginder Sharma to bowl the final over against Pakistan. The rest is history.
