    Another milestone for MSD

    The Asia Cup is now over. India has lifted the cup defeating Bangladesh in the final. The final was very exciting and the winner was decided only after the last ball was bowled. Indian batsmen, especially Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan, and bowlers like Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Kedar Jadhav have played brilliantly.

    In the excitement of winning the Asia Cup, we have forgotten a milestone of MSD. In this trophy, Dhoni could not do anything impressive with his bat, but his wicketkeeping was very impressive, along with providing guidance to the new captain, Rohit Sharma. In the final, Dhoni reached 800th international dismissal in wicketkeeping when he affected stumpings in Bangladesh innings. He is only the third wicketkeeper of the world to reach the milestone after Mark Boucher and Adam Gilchrist.

    Let us congratulate this great player who has been doing yeoman's service to the Indian cricket even in his last phase of cricketing life.

    Congrats to Dhoni to achieve this milestone. Its not easy to do that as wicket keeping needs energy and at this age he is still for wicket keeping. He is an expericed sports person and had been captain of India for many years so he might have given some useful tips to the officiating skipper.

    I am die hard fan of Dhoni and its good to see him being cool even when the audience is tense thats the quality which has made him succeful in life.

    Hearty congrats to MSD for being the third wicketkeeper to reach this milestone. Will it not be appropriate if we decide to call MS dhoni as Mile Stone Dhoni?

    Hearty Congrats to Dhoni for reaching the 800th wicket taker of the world and appreciate Sun for creating a new nick name for MS Dhoni as Mile Stone Dhoni. Really appropriate. He is the most coolest person and a player to have faith in the game and his boys. We can see him advising the captain Rohit sharma for getting best results out of boys. That is the professionalism of the Dhoni which is also being seen as the best sportsman quality. Unlike other players, we have never seen Dhoni loose cool in the ground and would play the match as it comes on his way. Once again he made India proud with Wicket keeping record.

    A great milestone achieved by Dhoni. It is a matter of great pleasure for all the cricket fans in our country and all of us wish good luck and more laurels to him.

    India has produced many world class cricketers and our younger generation especially who have inyerests in sports should learn lessons from these great players.

    Knowledge is power.

    This is indeed a great achievement from the former Indian captain. It is not going to be an easy task for the current or upcoming wicketkeepers. If we categorize the dismissals, then Dhoni stands No.1 for most stumpings in the career. No doubt about his stumping skills as he is the best in this type of wicket. Let us wish Dhoni to get more wickets to reach the No.1 spot for most dismissals in the career.

    A very great achievement by Dhoni. Making 800 dismissals in international cricket is excellent. My hearty congratulations to him. Dhoni is a real impressive wicketkeeper. His presence in the field makes a lot of difference. His on-field talks with the bowlers and suggestions to them will bring very good performances from the bowlers. As a senior player of the team, he always guides the captain also and his inputs help the captain in taking good steps.
    Congratulations to Team India for winning the Asia Cup for more number of times than any other participant country. Rohit Sharma also proved his strength as a captain in this tournament.

    always confident

    I think that MSD is really underrated in terms of his keeping. I know that he is struggling with his batting but his keeping is second to none. I hope that he retains his place so that we can get to see him in the World Cup. How can we forget his world cup winning shot? Can you?
