Jasprit Bumrah was brought into the attack and the in-form Carlos Brathwaite was on strike. A delivery bowled from wider of the crease and Brathwaite had no option but to follow the ball with bat snicked through. And here Dhoni dives to his right and takes a one-handed stunning catch. Brathwaite goes for just 1 off 5 balls. Windies’ run chase dreams shattered and TV screens started replaying Dhoni’s exceptional catch in a loop.
