India missed the performance of MS Dhoni in the third and fourth One-day International against New Zealand that he got a hamstring injury in New Zealand.
He returned joining the fifth and final ODI between India and New Zealand in Wellington. Dhoni assisted stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma in setting the field positions and also guided the slower bowlers.
During the fifth and final One-day International, the fact was proven that batsmen usually don’t get a second chance with MS Dhoni behind the stumps. India defeated New Zealand by 35 runs, winning the five-match ODI series 4-1.
The video of MS Dhoni running Jimmy Neesham out has gone viral. Kedar Jadhav’s ball was missed by Neesham hitting him on the back pad. All the Indian players requested the umpire but he declared it to be not out. The ball then deflected behind the stumps and without having any idea Neesham came out of the crease.
Dhoni immediately grabs the chance by picking up the ball and flicking it onto the stumps and failed not making a direct hit. The third umpire showed that Neesham was well short of the crease.
The incident has moved the International Cricket Council and the ICC tweeted, “Never leave your crease with MS Dhoni behind the stumps.”
On Sunday the match took place at the Westpac Stadium. James Neesham top-scored for the hosts with 44 runs off 32 balls. India had won the three successive One-day Internationals in Mount Maunganui and Napier while New Zealand won only one match in the fourth ODI in Hamilton.
