MS Dhoni caught 200 catches behind the wicket in Indian soil.

Once in a lifetime Legendary Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Wednesday scripted another record by becoming the first cricketer to complete 200 international catches in India. The 36-years-old MS Dhoni took the catch of Kiwis opening batsmen Martin Guptill in the third over off the bowling of Bhuvneshwar Kumar to reach the milestone during the second India-New Zealand ODI match. He thus became the world's third and first Indian wicket-keeper to achieve the feat. Sri Lankan legendary batsmen and wicketkeeper Kumar Sangakkara who retired from the entire format and England's Alec Stewart have done this in their respective countries before Dhoni.

Overall List of the catch taken, MS Dhoni is fourth on the list of most catches (288) - behind Adam Gilchrist (417) for Australia, Mark Boucher (402) for South Africa, Sangakkara (383) for Sri Lanka. Later in the innings, he took another catch, off the bowling of Hardik Pandya, to dismiss last match hero Ross Taylor. Dhoni scored 18 runs off 21 balls with three hits to the boundary and gave Dinesh Karthik see off the chase. India won the match by six wickets to level the series. The Kiwis have won the series opener in Mumbai by the same margin. The decider will be held on Sunday in Kanpur.
