WOW!

That second one,

How? He had probably about a second, and he times it perfectly. Had he whipped the bails a frame early it would have been not out.

This is just mad levels, I can't even find a parallel to compare him to.

I saw that in highlights. Those two were ridiculous stumpings.

 

This guy just catches and does the stumping. No backward movement once caught. Stunning job. I have made fun of his show off. These two stumpings were from the top drawer.

dhoni said that his stumping technique is bit different because he kept tennis ball cricket far too long

The way he flicks the ball on to the stumps without even looking is quite incredible.I find it even better that the stampings,Ishan kisan and Pant have tried it on a few occasions but they never seem to hit the stumps.

only Dickwella in recent times has potential to be close to Dhoni in terms of quickness in stumpings. He has aped the same technique

its perfect timing, remember Sabbir Rahman in WT20 :dontknow:

i mean. Fast hand is good but getting out is just tukka.  It is not like he watched batsman before affecting the stumps.  He gathered it and did it and fortunately for him, foot was in the air.  Dhoni does attempt stumpings many times in a game but not every time, it is out.  timing is nothing more than luck in this case.  fast hands is his specialty.  fast hand does not guarantee stumpings.  foot in the air when he is affecting stumping does, which is just pure luck.

his keeping when he debuted was nothing special.  it was more like part-time, was not better than Rahul.

Sabbir Rahman was not fast stumping.  he had ample time there to get the timing right.

you have just contradicted yourself by stating he had ample time in case of Sabbir's stuimping. The fact that he took the bails off the at the right time points to perfect timing. 

he is obviously watching the batsman and when he sees there is a chance he attempts the stumping, its not as if he is dislodging the bail every ball.

Fast hands improves the luck .

He loves being pedantic.

A keeper standing behind a batsmen, knows the balance of the batsmen. Yeh there is luck involved, but it's also great skill. Going on about the luck factor ignores how skillful the stumping is

I find it funny how in Dhoni's case, luck is always brought up. It's like people can't digest how good he is. :cantstop:

 

He affected the same kind of stumping in the space of 3 balls. So, according to this, the luck factor seems to have a temporal spread, than just a spark in one moment. Would love to hear further research findings from Dr. @rkt.india  :hatsoff:

At the end of the day a fraction of a second delay would have saved both batsmen. He was quick enough to do that.

I agree with @rkt.india with regards to Chris Morris stumping. He just collected it and had a go. Not like he observed batsmen foot in the air and immediately dislodged the bails.

Keeping that aside, Dhoni is God (:phehe: ) of stumpings. His keeping apart from stumpings and those flick throws runouts is just safe.

His catching is not at the level of his stumpings, agree.

 

His stumpings are next-level, tho.

 

Because he is so quick, he is able to be in sync with the flow of the moment, and I am sure he is at least subconsciously cognizant of the batter's foot. It is like dance (where I know where the music is going even if I haven't heard it before), and to an observer it looks  like magic, but it doesn't involve the thinking mind, it is more body mechanics and instinct (which comes from practice)
