Another milestone for MSDThe 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.
