In yet another adding feather to his cap, Indian wicket-keeper batsman MS Dhoni on 3rd August finally touched the milestone of completing 100 stumping in 301 matches.

Dhoni, who is known for his good work behind the stumps, has once again had a good day on field against Sri Lanka in the fifth and final match at the R. Premdasa Stadium on 3rd August.

Dhoni achieved this feat in 44th over of Sri Lankan inning as he removed bails comfortably on the Yuzvendra Chahal's delivery.

With this 100th 'lightining speed stumping', the Ranchi boy goes past the previous record held by Kumar Sangakkara - 99 stumpings.

MSD with this 99th stumping has already joined Sri Lankan legend Kumar Sangakkara's record.

Most of Dhoni’s stumpings have come off the bowling of off-spinner Harbhajan Singh (19), followed by Ravindra Jadeja (15) and R Ashwin (14). The remaining are shared by 19 other bowlers.

Esarlier on 24 August, Dhoni has joined the record for most ODI number of stumpings with 99 when he removed the bails of Gunathilaka's dismissal in the second one-day international match between India and Sri Lanka, at Pallekele International Cricket stadium.

Here is how Twitter celebrates his 100th stumping:
