When it comes to wicket-keepers, Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s name comes first in mind as this former captain of India has taken many surprising victims from behind the wicket with his agility. Dhoni had lightning speed, due to which he used to move his hands fast in less than seconds to hunt. Sam Billings of England did something similar. Billings has shown his quickness behind the wicket and has made a surprising run out.
Billings is not currently playing for the England team but for the Desert Vipers in the International League T20 being played in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). In this league, he has scored a brilliant run out against Sharjah Warriors while playing on Tuesday.

hunted in seconds
The 10th over of Warriors’ innings was being bowled. Benny Howley was bowling. The batsmen were in front, Joe Denley. The third ball of the over was outside the off stump, which was defended by Denley and the ball was going to wicketkeeper Billings, but Billings caught the ball on his right and hit the stump from there. . Denley made a mistake here. He did not keep the bat on the ground. During this, Billings threw the throw without seeing and the ball hit the stump. The bat was not at the crease and hence Denley had to return to the pavilion. Denley scored only one run after playing five balls.
A similar run out was done by Dhoni against New Zealand in Ranchi. Although Dhoni was away from the wicket, but without seeing the throw from the boundary, he hit the stump with a hand gesture.
