Mahendra Singh Dhoni's domination behind the stumps is unquestionable. The former India captain showed everyone that he is the real boss behind the stumps during India's first Champions Trophy warm-up match against New Zealand at the Kennington Oval in London.

After New Zealand were reduced to 110/5, Colin de Grandhomme came into bat. Known for his powerful act in crunch situations, Grandhomme, with an aim to resurrect his team's innings, took the crease.

Grandhomme, in an attempt to put pressure on Ravindra Jadeja, danced down the wicket and missed the ball. Dhoni, known for his calm head and quick hands behind the wickets, smartly whip the bails off in a fraction of a second and left the New Zealander stunned.
