Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni set a great record as a wicketkeeper in the IPL 2021 match against Kolkata Knight Riders. During the Kolkata innings, Dhoni caught Venkatesh Iyer and Dinesh Karthik behind Winkat, setting a record for most catches in the IPL in the name of a great captain.

At this point, there was a special coincidence that Dhoni outscored the former KKR captain Karthik to surpass Karthik’s record for most catches by a keeper in the IPL.

Dhoni holds the record of Most Catches in IPL

Dhoni now holds the record for 118 catches in the IPL. Karthik is very close to him, who has taken 115 catches in this largest cricket league in the world.

Dhoni also holds the record for most stumpings by a wicketkeeper in the IPL (39) and the most by a keeper (155) in a tournament. Karthik is at number two with a total of 147 victims. Apart from these two players, no other wicketkeeper has a record of more than 100 wickets in the IPL. Robin Uthappa is third on the list with 90 victims.

CSK got a close against KKR

At one stage of the match, Kolkata were very close to victory, but in the last over, Chennai star all-rounder Rabindra Jadeja snatched the victory from them. Jadeja, who came to bowl the 19th over of the innings, hit 22 off two fours and two sixes off fast bowler Prasidh Krishna in the same over to take the team back to the top of the points table.
