MS Dhoni and Dinesh Karthik, the only Players with 150 or more dismissals in the IPL

Kolkata Knight Riders recently shared a post on its official twitter account showing the list of players with 150 or more dismissals including stumps and catches in the IPL.

When we talk about the best wicketkeepers of India the first name that comes to our mind is MS Dhoni and the second name that comes is of Dinesh Karthik. Both of them have played in the Indian team for over a decade. MS Dhoni is the Indian captain who has ruled on cricket fraternity for many years.

Dinesh Karthik is also a veteran Indian Cricketer who has won matches for India Single-handedly. Although there have been numerous talks in the past that Karthik’s talent diminished in front of Dhoni’s incredible captaincy and glamour.
