As India works towards their a clean sweep in fifth ODI against Sri Lanka, Mahendra Singh Dhoni adds a milestone to his profile marking a 100th stump of his career, making him the first to achieve a stumping century in One Day Internationals.

Dhoni reached to the historic landmark when he dislodged Akila Dananjaya's bails and stumped him off the bowling of Yuzvendra Chahal in the 45th over of the Lankan innings.

The 36-year-old went past Kumar Sangakkara's tally of 99 stumpings when he effected the stumping of Sri Lanka all-rounder Wanida Hasranga in the fifth and final match of the ongoing ODI series in Colombo on Sunday, September 3. He finished his career with 75 stumpings. However, Sangakkara took 404 ODIs to reach this figure, while Dhoni now has 100 stumpings in just 301 ODIs.

Of Dhoni's stumpings, the most have come off Harbhajan Singh - 19. Dhoni is second with 381 (281 catches, 100 stumpings). Dhoni also has the highest number of stumpings in global cricket with 161 dismissals.

As per the recent reports, a Garbage dump cave in Delhi's Ghazipur reportedly collapsed, injuring over a dozen people on Friday. They received a call at around 2.45 p.m and reportedly sent four-five JCB machines to the spot for the rescue operations.

The former India captain, known for unorthodox skills behind the wicket, is fourth on the list of most dismissals in ODIs with 383 behind Sangakkara (482), Adam Gilchrist (472) and Mark Boucher (424).

Dhoni remained not-out in that match and he set a new milestone by remaining unbeaten in 73 innings in ODIs, which is the most for any player in the history of ODI cricket.

Dhoni, who led the national team to famous triumphs in 2007 World T20 and the 2011 World Cup, hopes to play in his fourth World Cup that will be held in 2019 in England and Wales.
