MS Dhoni added another accolade to his illustrious career by becoming the first wicket-keeper to take five catches in a T20 International as India restricted England to 198/9 after a flying start from the hosts in Bristol on Sunday. The Indian cricket team veteran also became the second ever wicket-keeper to complete five dismissals in a match after Afghanistan’s Mohammad Shahzad against Oman in 2015.
MS Dhoni is also leading the charts when it comes to the total number of dismissals completed by wicket-keepers in the shortest format of the game. The 37-year old has 87 dismissals from 93 matches and he is way ahead of Pakistan’s Kamran Akmal who has 60 dismissals from 58 T20 Internationals.
On Sunday, the famed England batting finally chose to flex its muscles, pummeling the Indian attack to all corners of the County Ground, Bristol, to plunder 198 for nine in the T20 series decider.
