Jharkhand cricketer Ishan Kishan on Tuesday nearly pulled-off an MS Dhoni inspired run out during the ongoing Duleep Trophy Final between India Red and India Blue.
Wicketkeeper Kishan burst in front of the stump and attempted a ‘blind’ run out but the batsman had completed his run. Former Indian team captain MS Dhoni, popular for his flawless glovework, has many-a-times inflicted ‘no-look’ run-outs.
