India vs Bangladesh 1st Test: Team India’s star wicket-keeper batter Rishabh Pant pulled off an MS Dhoni-led stumping on Day 4 of India vs Bangladesh 1st Test in Chattogram’s Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury stadium, Saturday. Pant’s lightning-fast work behind the stumps helped his team get the sixth Bangladeshi wicket, in form of Nurul Hasan (3), with spinner Axar Patel bagging his second wicket. Fans on Twitter recalled Dhoni after seeing Pant’s quick glovework. Mahendra Singh Dhoni, two-time World Cup winning wicket-keeper, was widely praised for his incredible keeping skills, during his playing days.
Excellent work behind the stumps now from Pant, was lightening quick to dislodge the bails and Nurul is short of his crease !!
