Dhoni goes past Kirmani as Indian 'keeper with most dismissals

November 06, 2011 15:47 IST

India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Sunday completed another milestone as he pipped Syed Kirmani to become the Indian wicketkeeper with highest number of dismissals in his kitty. 

Dhoni stumped Kraigg Brathwaite off Pragyan Ojha's bowling to bag his 199th victim in his 62nd Test match --- one more than Kirmani who represented India in 88 Tests. 

Among Dhoni's 199 victims, 173 are caught behind and 26 are stumpings. 

Apart from Dhoni and Kirmani, only Kiran More and Nayan Mongia are the other two wicketkeepers who have  recorded more than 100 dismissals. More had 130 dismissals from 49 Tests while Mongia had 107 victims from 44 Tests.
