MS Dhoni becomes first Indian wicket-keeper to effect 400 dismissals in ODIs Indian wicket-keeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni. File Photo

Cape Town: Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Wednesday became the fourth wicketkeeper to effect 400 dismissals in ODIs when he had Aiden Markram stumped during the third match between India and South Africa here.

Stand-in captain Markram was beaten by a flighted delivery from chinaman Kuldeep Yadav and Dhoni was quick to whip off the bails in the 17th over of the innings.

Wicketkeepers who have more dismissals to their name than Dhoni are Kumar Sangakkara (482), Adam Gilchrist (472) and Mark Boucher (424).

In September last year, Dhoni also became the first wicketkeeper in the history of ODI cricket to effect 100 stumpings, going past Sangakkara's mark of 99 during the fifth match against Sri Lanka at R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.
