India defeated Australia by 6 wickets in the second match of the series of three T20 matches. During this match, many players showed their light, but the incident caught everyone’s attention.
In fact, in the absence of regular captain Aaron Finch, the team’s captain Matthew Wade remembered former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the middle of the match. He named Mahi during the match. Hearing this, Shikhar Dhawan and the commentator laughed.
Actually, it happened that the young Australian spinner Mitchell Sweepson came to India for the ninth over of India’s innings. He bowled a wide ball. It was very much out of short and off stump. Dhawan wanted to cut on this ball, but missed it.
Behind the wicket, Mustaid Matthew Wade caught the ball and scattered the gills above the stumps. The on-field umpire sent the decision to the third umpire. In the replay, it was revealed that Dhawan narrowly escaped by just a few inches.
Similarly, Mahendra Singh Dhoni stumped Bangladesh’s Shabbir Ahmed during the 2016 T20 World Cup. Here Wade could not do such a miracle. As soon as the third umpire’s verdict was shown on the screen, his mouth went out, “I am not Dhoni.” I am not as sharp as Dhoni. “After this he started laughing with Dhawan. The commentators doing the commentary also laughed during the match. The video went viral on social media.
Dhawan scored 52 off 36 balls in the match. India has succeeded in winning the series on Australia’s ground for the second time. The last time they won the series was 3–0 in 2016. India had to score 25 runs to win the last two overs.
Hardik Pandya and Shreyas Iyer teamed up to lead Team India to victory. Playing a stormy innings, Hardik hit an unbeaten 42 off 22 balls. He hit 3 fours and 2 sixes in his innings. Shreyas Iyer remained unbeaten on 12 runs off 5 balls.
