He might be struggling with the bat but Mahendra Singh Dhoni's domination behind the stumps is unquestionable.

During the IPL match between Rising Pune Supergiant and Royal Challengers Bangalore, Dhoni's sharp and efficient stumping stunned everyone when he dismissed AB de Villiers in his well-known style.

The incident happened on the second ball of Imran Tahir's second over.

De Villiers missed out a delivery off Tahir and Dhoni, without wasting anytime, knocked the bails off to show De Villiers the way back to the pavilion.


RPS ended their three-match losing run as they defeated RCB by 27 runs.

Asked to bat, Pune suffered a late batting collapse but managed to post a competitive total of 161 for eight in 20 overs. In reply, RCB put up an below-par show, being restricted to 134/9, as they suffered their hat-trick of losses.
