MS Dhoni's presence of mind saves him from being stumped

He is one of the fastest wicketkeeper in the history of the game.

There has been an element of inconsistency in his batting form but Mahendra Singh Dhoni believes that he is like a vintage wine that tastes better with passage of time. His work behind the stumps is just impossible to match but yesterday he showed us how to save oneself from being stumped.

Meanwhile, West Indies captain Jason Holder said, "Bowlers did a hell of a job".

During the 41st over, Devendra Bishoo seemed to have spotted a premeditated Dhoni coming down the track and hence he deliberately bowled the ball wide. It was bit of an early shot, but Dhoni had got what he wanted, that too in style. This was something any batter has hardly tried.

In the post-match conference, Dhoni was asked how is he becoming with age.

He further said, "Our top-order has been doing the bulk of the scoring in the last one-one and a half years, so it felt good to get an opportunity and score runs".

"I think it was the nature of the wicket (what made the knock special)". "It was important to have a partnership at that stage".

Dhoni was very vocal behind the stumps, giving instructions to spinners (Kuldeep Yadav and R Ashwin), most of which was picked up by the stump mic.

Sign of things to come - Evin Lewis is bowled in the second over and then it was a case of they all fell down. Kuldeep has played a lot of games in IPL but when it comes to worldwide cricket, it's important to know where to use your variety. Once he plays 5-10 games, he will realise it himself. The offspinner achieved the landmark in the third one-dayer against the West Indies in Antigua, which India won by 93 runs. The fourth ODI will also take place at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua on Sunday.
