Dhoni Becomes First Indian To Register 800-Plus Dismissals In International Cricket

Former India captain MS Dhoni on Friday once again proved why he is regarded as one of the greatest wicketkeepers of all time. During the Asia Cup 2018 final match between India and Bangladesh, Dhoni became the first Asian cricketer to register 800-plus dismissals in international cricket. He is now third in the list for the most number of dismissals in Tests, ODIs, and T20Is combined. The Indian superstar is behind South African cricketer Mark Boucher (998) and Adam Gilchrist (905) of Australia.
It was in the 43rd over of the match when Dhoni registered his 800th dismissal in international cricket. Kuldeep Yadav, who registered figures of 3/45, bowled a googly wide of the off stump to Mashrafe Mortaza. The Bangladesh captain shimmied down the wicket but failed to make the connection.
