Just like his batting, Mahendra Singh Dhoni is an absolute boss when it comes to glove work behind the stumps. The former India skipper on Sunday became the first wicketkeeper in world cricket to effect 100 stumpings in One Day Internationals. Twitter was flooded with congratulatory messages after Dhoni added another feather to his illustrious cap. Dhoni achieved the feat in his 301st ODI when he whipped off the bails to remove Akila Dananjaya off leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal's bowling.
When he started, Wicketkeeping was his weaker suit...he'll finish as the best wicketkeeper of his generation. Dhoni-G faster than 3G-4G. ????— Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) September 3, 2017
