Mahi-Bhuvi Show! Dhoni, Bhuvneshwar execute plan ‘dead’ right to clinch Finch; watch video

MS Dhoni is known for his mind games on the field and during the 3rd ODI against Australia at Melbourne too, he used his brain tactics to plan the dismissal of Aaron Finch. During the 9th over of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the Aussie skipper Finch played five dots in the row.

Later, Bhuvneshwar bowled the last ball from way behind from the stumps, and it was called dead ball by the umpire. Bhuvneshwar bowled the ball so much from behind from the stumps that his back leg stood behind the umpire. Have a look at the video.

Finch pulled away from the ball too late and umpire called it a dead ball. It seemed like Finch got confused as Bhuvneshwar bowled the ball from too much behind the stumps. When he again bowled the final ball of the over, Finch was dismissed LBW. Below is the video of the ball that dismissed Finch.

Later, replays showed that MS Dhoni had a little chat with the Indian pacer and advised him to bowl from behind as Finch was batting too ahead of the crease. The advice worked and Finch had to go back at the score of 14 runs.
