WATCH: MS Dhoni helps Kedar Jadhav plot the dismissal of Kane Williamson

MS Dhoni made a comeback to the Indian side during the fifth and final ODI at the Westpac Stadium at Wellington after missing the last couple of matches with a sore hamstring. The 37 year did not have a day to remember with the bat by any means having being dismissed by Trent Boult after scoring just one run off six deliveries. The veteran however proved his worth behind the stumps once again as he so often does with a brilliant run out to go with his instructions to the bowlers from time to time.

Chasing 253 runs in the second innings, New Zealand were jolted by early blows from the Indian bowlers. Mohammad Shami removed both the New Zealand openers Henry Nicholls and Colin Munro before Hardik Pandya chipped in with the useful wicket of Ross Taylor. Skipper Kane Williamson and wicketkeeper batsman Tom Latham were set on the task to bail the hosts out of trouble and kept rotating the strike beautifully along with the odd boundary to keep the scoreboard ticking.

The duo shared a 67 run stand in the middle for the fourth wicket before MS Dhoni, along with Kedar Jadhav came up with a brilliant ploy to dismiss the New Zealand skipper in the 26th over of the innings. It was a short ball from Kedar Jadhav tempting Williamson, who was looking to power the pull over the ropes. There was however no pace on the delivery and Williamson ended up handing an easy catch to Shikhar Dhawan at deep mid wicket. Dhawan completed the catch with no difficulty at all and celebrated with his trademark thigh-five celebration.

Kedar Jadhav was ecstatic with the wicket and showed off his stump moves while MS Dhoni had his arms pointing up in the air. There was the indication that there was definitely some planning going on to dismiss the New Zealand skipper. There was nothing heard off the stump mic suggesting the same, but the celebration from the duo said it all.
