A top gesture from the former captain to the current skipper.

Indian captain Virat Kohli has revealed that former skipper MS Dhoni gave him a signed match ball after the second ODI between India and England at Cuttack.

Dhoni has a habit of collecting stumps after India’s wins, but isn’t able to do so these days as the LED stumps are expensive.

Therefore, when Kohli completed his first ODI series win as permanent captain, Dhoni gave him the match ball instead at the end of the game.

“Well, MS gave me the match ball in the second game. The stumps are too expensive nowadays and they don’t allow us to take it home (smiles),” said. Kohli.

“He gave me the ball and told me that it was my first series win as captain and it is memorable. It was a special moment for me and I got the ball signed from him as well.”

Virat Kohli has started his tenure as India’s newly appointed captain, on a successful note with his team scoring an impressive 2-1 ODI series triumph over England.

Acknowledging Kohli’s achievement, MS Dhoni decided to give the new Indian skipper a perfect gift which he’ll remember all his life.

Dhoni gave his successor a signed match ball as a memorabilia for debut series win.

Since the former Indian skipper had a habit of collecting stumps after every win, so the best choice was gifting stumps. But cricketers aren’t allowed to take them home since the new LED stumps are very costly. So Dhoni had no option but to give this signed ball.

In an interview to BCCI.TV, Kohli said:

Anyone who has watched cricket in the last decade will have noticed MS Dhoni's habit of collecting a stump to commemorate every victory. The Lt Colonel of the Indian Territorial Army's peculiar post-game ritual has most of us speculating about the reason behind the behaviour. Though we all have our versions for why he does it, we never knew the answer. Until now.

So why exactly does the wicketkeeper-batsman take a stump for each triumph?

The reasons behind this ritual has been the cause of much speculation for Dhoni fans.

There have been stories behind the act, ranging from the astrological to the completely unreal. Some say, Dhoni's zodiac sign being Cancer gives him the personality trait of being a habitual hoarder. Another far-fetched story claimed that Dhoni has been collecting stumps to help one of his friends build a fence around his house with it (fairly uneconomic idea, if you ask me).

In a recent interview with BCCI, Dhoni explained the idea...

MS Dhoni was always known to collect a stump if he won a big match. Now he may no longer be skipper but that has not stopped him from ensuring a similar tradition for new captain Virat Kohli.

AFP

Since it is no longer permitted to take the stumps as the LED ones are very expensive, Dhoni gifted Kohli the series-winning ball after India won the 2nd ODI by 15 runs in Cuttack.

Kohli was pleasantly surprised by Dhoni's gesture and accepted the gift with a big smile on his face and then later on got the ball signed by India's most successful captain across all formats.

AFP

"MS gave me the match ball in the second game because the stumps are too expensive nowadays they don't allow us to take them home. Maybe in the Test series it's allowed but shorter format I cannot pick anything. MS gave me the ball in Cuttack saying it's your first series, it's memorable for you and that was very special, I got it signed from him as well," he said...

A total of 18 wickets fell in Vadodara as four wickets each from medium-pacers Sumit Narwal and Pradeep Sangwan saw Saurashtra fold for 92 before Delhi went to stumps on 194 for 8 with a 102-run lead.

Delhi, who need an outright win to be assured of a playoff spot, chose to field. Wicketkeeper Snell Patel (26) and Kishan Parmar (12) scored 24 runs for the first wicket, but the latter's dismissal saw Saurashtra quickly fall to 35 for 4. Narwal and Sangwan removed the top seven batsmen, before part-time offspinner Nitish Rana took two wickets with the score on 81 in the 30th over. Saurashtra folded for 92 inside 34 overs. Prerak Mankad top-scored for the third Saurashtra innings in a row with his 33.

Shikhar Dhawan and Gautam Gambhir opened Delhi's innings and were out in consecutive overs after scoring 16 runs each. Their wickets were part of a collapse that saw Delhi go from 38 for no loss to 57 for 4. Rishabh Pant then hit a 28-ball 40 to take Delhi past...

They will be wary too, particularly of Stokes. He has produced breathtaking cricket for England before in his short Test career but this is the first time he has combined both bat and ball with such devastating results. To take six for 46 in a Test where only three other wickets fell to seam speaks volumes for his willingness to flog himself on a spinner’s pitch. His four for 26 in the first innings, often bowling in the sweltering high heat of the day, tipped the game England’s way as it delivered the slender lead they needed for victory.

To score 103 runs across two innings, just five fewer than the total made by the top four in the entire match, has shown Stokes can be dangerous on Asian pitches after adding a sound defence and better shot selection to his game. His partnerships with Moeen Ali in the first innings, and Jonny Bairstow in the second, were made in difficult circumstances, with close in fielders yakking away and spinners scenting English wickets....

As I said in my previous answer, Zings, the new high-tech LED stumps, are very costly. The entire set-up during a match costs US$ 40,000. That's why Bronte EcKermann, the inventor of Zings doesn't allow players to uproot them after winning the match. He also denied to take them even after winning the final.

But as an exception he said that he will allow MS Dhoni, the captain of the Indian Cricket team, to take the stumps only if India win the T20 World Cup 2014:

"Well, this is a very costly system. The entire set-up during a match costs US$ 40,000 (Rs 25 lakh approx), so I don't allow the players to uproot it during any celebrations. But I know Dhoni loves keeping a souvenir stump. If India can win the final, I might get into some arrangement with Dhoni," EcKermann, the inventor of LED stumps, said.

These LED enabled stumps are technically called the Zing Wicket System. The company that manufactures was conceived by Bronte EcKermann, an Australian mechanical industrial designer, and created by South Australian manufacturer Zing International. So, I don't what is the reason but these bails are only seen in Australian Domestic Competitions and ICC Competitons. I guess the reason is that company hasn't licensed these stumps to all.
The other reason can be expensiveness. Each set of stumps costs about 25-30 lakhs with each bail costing 50-60,000. These stumps are accurate enough to light within 1/1000th second when the bails are dislodged. Maybe BCCI is looking forward to the time when these stumps get a bit cheaper.

And as Shankara Narayan said Dhoni can't take these stumps home, so maybe BCCI won't use them till the time it is allowed for Dhoni :p (He has a habit of collecting stumps from Important Matches but was refused in the match against Pakistan in the World...

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has followed Cricket Australia (CA) in literally lighting up the stumps and bails during the ICC World Twenty20 tournament here in Bangladesh.

Forget about wooden stumps. These days, fast-paced Twenty20 cricket is all about glowing zings. Costing $40,000 a set, these stumps are made of composite plastic and have LEDs that glimmer at the slightest impact with the ball.

The new Zing Wicket System will see the stumps literally light up with bright red LEDs as soon as the wickets are broken. A sensor in the bails will send a radio signal within 1/1000 of a second even with the slightest impact. The Zing Wicket System has been used in the Australian Big Bash and the T20 leagues in Australia and New Zealand before.

However, each bail is precious and costs as much as an iPhone, which means players will not be allowed to take away the stumps and bails as souvenirs after winning a match.

Everyone is aware of Mahendra Singh Dhoni's penchant for collecting stumps as souvenirs after every India win but just like last year's World Twenty20 in Bangladesh, he won't be able to collect any during the ongoing ODI World Cup irrespective of his team's victories.

The World Cup in Australia and New Zealand again has the LED stumps, which are touch-sensitive and blink whenever the bails get whipped off.

Dhoni won't be able to keep any of these bails or stumps unless there is an official permission from the ICC in this regard. AFP

Just after India completed their win against arch-rivals Pakistan yesterday at the Adelaide Oval, Dhoni took one of the bails but then Ian Gould, who was the square leg umpire, had a friendly chat with him after which one saw the bail remaining where it is.

The specific reason being that these set of 'LED stumps' cost USD 40,000 (Rs 24 lakh) and the pair of bails costs as much as an iPhone 5 (Rs 50,000 approx).

Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of eleven players on a cricket field, at the centre of which is a rectangular 22-yard-long pitch with a wicket (a set of three wooden stumps) sited at each end. One team, designated the batting team, attempts to score as many runs as possible, whilst their opponents field. Each phase of play is called an innings. After either ten batsmen have been dismissed or a fixed number of overs have been completed, the innings ends and the two teams then swap roles. The winning team is the one that scores the most runs, including any extras gained, during their one or two innings.

At the start of each game, two batsmen and eleven fielders enter the field of play. The play begins when a designated member of the fielding team, known as the bowler, delivers the ball from one end of the pitch to the other, towards the wicket at that end, in front of which stands one of the batsmen, known as the striker. The striker "takes guard" on a...
