Former CSK captain MS Dhoni has prompted comparisons with Jonty Rhodes after he dismissed PBKS batter Bhanuka Rajapaksa with a lightning-fast dive that resulted in a run-out. 

Though, to be fair, and with no offense intended towards Jonty, Dhoni need not be compared to any other cricketer when it comes to fielding. 

He is one of the most successful wicket-keepers, if not the most successful, and his prowess does not seem to be getting affected by age.

Having given up on the captaincy, Dhoni entered this season focused to help his team, CSK, and the stumping of Rajapaksa is only an example of the same. Here are some of the reactions to the dismissal.

Now, while Dhoni certainly deserves the appreciation, so does bowler Chris Jordan who threw the ball towards the stumps in the first place. He couldn’t hit the stumps, but he was fast and that helped Dhoni in executing the dismissal.

Ultimately PBKS won the match by 54 runs, bundling out the entire CSK side for 128. With this Chennai’s losing streak continues, hinting at troublesome times ahead if they don’t fix things with immediate effect.
