WATCH: Faf du Plessis compares David Miller to MS Dhoni after he attempts a quick stumping

The second ODI between South Africa and Sri Lanka witnessed one of the most unusual but entertaining scenes ever seen. The islanders were already down and out at 135/9 chasing 252 when regular wicketkeeper Quinton De Kock had to walk off the field for some reason. David Miller decided to don the wicketkeeping gloves in his absence and that too without the pads on. Miller however took just four deliveries to make his presence felt behind the stumps.

The incident occurred in the fourth ball of the 32nd over bowled by South African legspinner Imran Tahir. Miller, who is no regular behind the stumps, managed to take the bails off in a flash as Vishwa Fernando looked to slog Tahir out to the park only to end up missing the ball completely. Fernando however had his foot rooted to the crease all the time and there was no damage done.

South Africa skipper Du Plessis who was stationed at first slip, decided the have some fun in the field with the game already in the pocket. Faf was visibly impressed with Miller’s effort lauding it with praise of the highest order. Faf hilariously referred to Miller as ‘MS Dhoni’ who is known for effecting such lightening fast stumpings from time to time.
