Indian wicket-keeper batsman MS Dhoni, who is known for his good work behind the stumps, has once again had a good day on field against Sri Lanka in which India registered a comfortable 9 wickets win in the opening ODI of the five-match series at the Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium on 20 August.
Apart from stupendous performance by Shikhar Dhawan, Dhoni was one of the stars of the match after he managed to stump off Chahal's bowling to send Lasith Malinga (8) back in to the hunt.
Interestingly, the magical moment with the gloves was created with a wide ball as it was cleanly collected by Dhoni to take off the bails in no time.
Here is how Twitter erupted in laughter on the micro blogging site:

Shikhar Dhawan hit his 11th ODI hundred for which he was awarded with the 'Man of the Match' title. Kohli crossed fifty for 44th time in the format.
Having been put in to bat first, Sri Lanka got off to strong start, but after losing Niroshan Dickwella in the 25th over, wickets started to tumble for the hosts.
