Dhoni Surpasses Kirmani

 

When
MS Dhoni stumped West Indies' Kraigg Brathwaite off Pragyan Ojha, it was his
199th wicketkeeping dismissal in Tests. He thus overtook Syed
Kirmani, who had held the Indian record of 198 dismissals.

 

Kirmani,
who finished playing Tests in 1986, was the first Indian wicketkeeper to 100
Test dismissals, and he had owned the record for over three decades.

 

Later
in the innings, Dhoni caught Marlon Samuels, making him the first Indian
wicketkeeper to 200 dismissals.

 

Dhoni
is the 13th wicketkeeper to reach the mark. He would be expected to
climb this list quickly given that most of these wicketkeepers here have
retired.
