MS Dhoni becomes first Indian wicket keeper
Cape Town: Veteran India cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Wednesday (February 7) touched yet another milestone during the third ODI against South Africa. MS Dhoni became the fourth wicket-keeper to effect 400 dismissals in ODIs when he had Aiden Markram stumped off Kuldeep Yadav's delivery.
Stand-in captain Markram was beaten by a flighted delivery from chinaman Kuldeep and Dhoni was quick to whip off the bails in the 17th over of the innings. Wicket-keepers who have more dismissals to their name than Dhoni are Kumar Sangakkara (482), Adam Gilchrist (472) and Mark Boucher (424). The 36-year-old may not have had a good outing with the bat, but he definitely had a memorable moment when he came out in the field as the glovesman. The former India captain also took a catch behind the stumps. Out of those 401 dismissals, Dhoni has taken 295 catches and 106 stumpings. India, later, went on winning the match by a huge margin of 124 runs and took an unassailable 3-0 lead against a listless South African side.
