Not Mahendra Singh Dhoni but this man is the most successful wicketkeeper in IPL history

New Delhi: India's limited-overs skipper MS Dhoni is widely regarded as one of the best wicketkeeper-batsmen of his generation.

Apart from his stupendous performances in international cricket, Mahi has been equally impressive in the Indian Premier League since its inception in 2008.

Despite dominating the cash-rich league with the Chennai Super Kings, Dhoni interestingly isn't its most successful wicketkeeper.

That record belongs to Gujarat Lions' Dinesh Karthik, who has 97 dismissals (71 catches, 26 stumpings) to his name so far.

Dhoni on the other hand is second on that list with 89 dismissals (62 catches and 27 stumpings) in 142 matches for CSK and Rising Pune Supergiants.

DK has represented five teams - Delhi Daredevils, Gujarat Lions, Kings XI Punjab, Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore - in the nine editions of the IPL.

The Tamil Nadu cricketer has over the years fetched a solid amount at the IPL auction.

After a disappointing season with RCB in 2015, the right-hander has bounced back this season with a solid show.

Karthik has accumulated 280 runs with 3 fifties and completed 13 dismissals (10 catches, 3 stumpings) in 13 outings.

Suresh Raina-led Gujarat Lions face Mumbai Indians on Saturday in their last match before the play-offs.
