Tried for the stamp out. But at that time Shikhar Dhawan’s feet were on the ground. The umpire naturally gave a not-out signal . Then Australian wicket keeper and captain Matthew Wade admitted that he could not stump as fast as Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
India and Australia face off in the 2nd T-20 match in Sydney on Sunday. Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat first. Australia made 194 for 5 after the 20 overs, by help of Matthew Wade’s 56 (36 balls) and Steve Smith’s 47 (38 balls).
In reply, India gave a good start by batting but lost K L Rahul in the 6th over. Then Dhawan and virat Kohli took the duty of the innings. Mitchell Sweepsen bowled a short ball outside the offstump in 7.5 overs. Dhawan went to pavilion. Dhawan was not in perfect balance. So after waiting for a while in Dhoni’s
style, Bell shook Wade and appealed for stamping. Which goes to the third umpire. It can be seen that Dhawan’s leg was in the air for a while but Wade took it down before the wicket stopped the ball. The umpire did not give out naturally. Instead, the onfield umpire gave wide after the decision of the third umpire.
Meanwhile, Wade jokingly said to take a Dhawan strike for the next ball, “Not Dhoni, not as fast as Dhoni.” The commentators laughed when they heard that. “In my opinion, the fastest hand in the game is Mahendra Singh Dhoni,” they said.
