Does MS Dhoni hold the record for the most stumpings in international cricket? asked Seena John from Bahrain?
The two stumpings MS Dhoni made in the one-day international against England at Trent Bridge on Saturday took him clear of Kumar Sangakkara's 129 stumpings in all international cricket.
Dhoni had 131 after that Nottingham game - 83 in ODIs, 37 in Tests, and 11 in Twenty20s. The only other wicketkeeper to have made 100 international stumpings is another Sri Lankan, Romesh Kaluwitharana, with 101.
In ODIs only, Dhoni is still six behind Sangakkara (89). The only keepers with more stumpings in Tests are Bert Oldfield (52), Godfrey Evans (46) and Syed Kirmani (38); Adam Gilchrist also made 37.
Kamran Akmal leads the way in T20 internationals with 32, well ahead of Sangakkara and Mushfiqur Rahim with 20.
