Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Wednesday became the first wicketkeeper to affect 150 dismissals in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

After achieving this milestone Suresh Raina congratulated him on Twitter. Raina wrote “150 dismissals in IPL, another Great Feat! Keep Inspiring all of us, Thala!”

In the match against Kolkata Knight Riders, MS Dhoni took 3 catches to reach the milestone of 150 dismissals in IPL. He now has 151 dismissals in his name, out of which there are 112 catches and 39 stumpings. Dinesh Karthik holds the 2nd spot with 143 dismissals in IPL so far. The Kolkata Knight Riders’ player Dinesh Karthik has taken 112 catches and undertook 31 stumpings.

Dhoni reached the milestone of 150 dismissals after grabbing Nitish Rana’s catch off Deepak Chahar’s delivery. Rana got an edge after attempting to flick the ball. The ball went to square leg and MS Dhoni ran quickly to catch the ball. Other than Nitish Rana, MS Dhoni also took catches of Rahul Tripathi and Eoin Morgan in the match.

Dhoni-led CSK pulled off a thrilling win against KKR as Andre Russell (54 off 22) and Pat Cummins (66 off 34) gave a scare to the Yellow Army with their sensational knocks. Following the 18-run win over KKR, CSK has now occupied the top spot in the IPL 2021 points table.

Ruturaj Gaikwad rediscovered his form at the top of the order with a fluent 42-ball 64 and the youngster added 115 runs for the opening wicket with Faf du Plessis (95 off 60).

Heaping praise upon the two openers, Dhoni said after the match that despite putting 220 runs on board, he had asked his teammates to remain humble.
