Hossain decided to defend the ball and stepped out of the crease. But he was unable to defend the ball.

He caught the ball off the ground with lightning speed and took the bails off. Hossain did not notice that his feet were out of the crease.

Twitter users have compared Jurel with Dhoni, former Indian captain, who has been known for very fast stumping work throughout his career.
