Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni became the first wicketkeeper in world cricket to effect 100 stumpings in One Day Internationals during the fifth ODI against Sri Lanka on Sunday.

Dhoni achieved the feat in his 301st ODI when he whipped off the bails to remove Akila Dananjaya off leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal's bowling.

The 36-year-old has also taken 281 catches apart from scoring 9657 runs (before the start of the Indian chase).

Dhoni has also played 90 Tests and 77 T20 Internationals.

In 90 Tests, the former India captain has taken 256 catches and effected 38 stumpings while his T20 Internationals' catches/stumping record stands at 43/23.
