Cricketing world bows down to MS Dhoni for reaching 100 stumpings record

Cricketing world bows down to MS Dhoni for reaching 100 stumpings record

MS Dhoni reached the record-scripting 100th-stumping mark in One-Day International cricket that no other wicketkeeper in the world had ever done. The former Indian captain did so by removing the bails to dismiss Akila Dananjaya after the batsman was left outfoxed by Yuzvendra Chahal. Ergo, Dhoni overhauled the record set by Sri Lankan legend Kumar Sangakkara to affect 100 stumpings in ODIs.
