MS Dhoni has a splendid career and has broken a number of records including the highest number of catches in the T20s. He achieved this feather in his cap with 49 catches. He is followed by the West Indies player Dinesh Ramdhin with 32 catches in the T20Is. The South African wicket-keeper Quinton De Kock stood in the third place in this list with 30 catches.

Dhoni is four stumpings away to top the list with the highest number of stumpings. This has surpassed Kumara Sangakkara’s record of the highest number of catches in the T20s in the third T20I against South Africa.

Even at the age of 36, he is no less than a youngster to dive for the ball, under arm flicks and to whip off the bails at a glance. He is constantly striving to prove himself as the best wicket-keeper in the cricket history of India.

Currently, this Jharkhand Dynamite is in a poor form but did well with his fifty in the second T20I against South Africa. He is expected to perform well in the decider match, the third T20I against South Africa to be held at Cape Town today.

Dhoni is one of the best Captains India ever seen. He led the team towards the T20I World Championship in 2007. He was the captain of the team when India won the ICC world cup for the second time in 2011.
