Hobart:

Mahendra Singh Dhoni became the second Indian wicketkeeper and 17th in the world to take 100 one-day international catches during India's last league game against Sri Lanka in the CB tri-series, at Hobart on Tuesday.

Dhoni, who had 98 catches and 31 stumpings to his credit before the match, achieved the feat when he pouched an edge of Chamara Silva off Praveen Kumar for the fourth wicket to fall in the Sri Lankan innings.

He went on to take one more catch in the innings to take his tally to 101 and total dismissals to 132 from 104 matches.

Dhoni's 132 is second only to Nayan Mongia who had effected 110 catches and 44 stumpings to aggregate 154 dismissals from 140 matches while playing between 1994 and 2000.

Dhoni is 16th overall in the total number of ODI dismissals in a list headed by retiring Australian Adam Gilchrist who has 471 dismissals (416 catches and 55 stumpings).

The Indian skipper has 78 dismissals from 26 Tests (65 catches and 13 stumpings) to his credit and two dismissals -- all catches -- from 10 Twenty20 matches he has played so far.
