MS Dhoni was one of the most complete cricketers to have represented India, and his stellar records both as a batsman and leader speak volumes about the effect he had on Indian cricket throughout his career. It is widely acknowledged that Dhoni won India many games with his batting and smart decisions, but we often forget he was probably the best glovesman in the world and given his rivals included Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara, Australia’s Adam Gilchrist and South Africa’s Mark Boucher, it was definitely a no mean feat. © Reuters As Dhoni turned 40 on Wednesday, the International Cricket Council shared a video of Dhoni’s famous stumpings. The world governing body, which is often blamed for showing bias towards Indian cricketers just to please their large fan base, decided to tread with caution and ended up making a mistake. “Only for a fraction of a second and Dhoni, like lightning, had those bails off.” Happy birthday to one of the sharpest keepers in cricket history,” ICC wrote on the micro-blogging site. “Only for a fraction of a second and Dhoni, like lightning, had those bails off.” Happy birthday to one of the sharpest keepers in cricket history 🧤 pic.twitter.com/WNwxngwx5E — ICC (@ICC) July 7, 2021 In the video thumbnail, the ICC had described Dhoni as “quickest hands in the East” and the Sri Lankan legend Sangakkara was quick to correct the ICC and wrote that Dhoni was the “quickest hands in the world during his time not just the East”. While most Indian fans would say that there wasn’t any debate and that they already knew that Dhoni was the quickest wicket-keeper in the world, deep down even they knew how close the fight was between Dhoni and his compatriots. © Reuters Sangakkara was one of the all-time greatest cricketers to have played the gentleman’s game and his induction into the ICC Hall of Fame only confirms his stature in world cricket. Like Dhoni, Sangakkaraa was known for his humble nature and if someone like him praises a particular player, it goes on to prove how special the player must have been. © Reuters The ‘Thala’ fans were moved by Sangakkara’s gesture and hailed him as the legend of the game and someone who always played with so much class and dignity, a quality of a true sportsman. Only a great human being could have said this. You are a true Legend & great human being. Always played the game with so much class & dignity. There was a time when it felt @KumarSanga2 has never been out of form. — what India Loves (@whatindialoves) July 7, 2021Spoken like a champion and legend!
