He achieved this milestone after he whipped the bails off to dismiss Danushka Guathilaka who is Sri Lankan opener in the second One day International of a five-match series in Kandy. Apart from being renowned as one of the finest team captain in the Indian cricket history, Dhoni is also renowned as one of finest wicket keeper of India.

Till now Mahendra Singh Dhoni has dismissed 377 times as a wicketkeeper in One-day Internationals. He holds 4th rank in the list of top wicketkeeper on the basis of dismissals they have done. Kumar Sangakkara who is former Srilankan cricketer tops the list with 482 dismissals.

Well, looking on his extraordinary skills and commitment towards cricket Dhoni promises to break all the records and looks all set a new benchmark for other veteran wicketkeepers if he continues to pay for few more years.  

I personally feel that Dhoni is definitely going surpass all the records because his hands behind the wickets work magically at a lightning fast speed.
