In the shorter versions of the game, stumping is an important kind of dismissal. To remove the bails in a fraction of a second, you’ll need a lot of concentration and dexterity. There have been numerous wicketkeepers who have perfected the technique of stumping in the past. MS Dhoni, the former Indian captain, is one of the few wicket-keepers who has redefined the current phenomena of wicket-keeping.
Because there is so much T20 cricket these days, records are frequently broken. Batsmen, bowlers, fielders, and wicket-keepers are all smashing records. When it comes to wicket-keepers, there have been some outstanding keepers in the shortest format. People in the present day don’t talk about maintaining records; instead, they assess a keeper based on his batting statistics. However, wicket-keeping is crucial because a fast stumping or a diving catch may turn the game around.
MS Dhoni – 34
MS Dhoni, one of the coolest captains and finest Wicket-Keepers in T20 International cricket, has the record for most dismissals. Dhoni was the first wicket-keeper in T20 cricket history to attain 250 dismissals, which is a huge accomplishment. Dhoni has 250 dismissals to his name, including 167 catches and 83 stumpings in 315 T20s for India, CSK, and his stateside. When it comes to stumpings, MS Dhoni possesses the quickest hands. For any spinner, he is the perfect man to keep wickets.
