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.

The 36-year-old has also taken 281 catches apart from scoring 9657 runs in his career.

Dhoni has played 90 Tests and 77 Twenty20 Internationals.

In 90 Tests, Dhoni has taken 256 catches and effected 38 stumpings while his T20 Internationals' catches/stumping record stands at 43/23.
