India vs England T20I: MS Dhoni's new world record

Cardiff : Adding another milestone to his illustrious career, Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Sunday created a world record of taking maximum catches by a wicket keeper in a T20 International. The Indian cricket team veteran also became the second ever wicket-keeper to complete five dismissals in a match after Afghanistan’s Mohammad Shahzad against Oman in 2015.

MS Dhoni already leads the chart of taking maximum wickets by a wicket keeper in shortest format of the game. The 37-year old has 87 dismissals from 93 matches and he is way ahead of Pakistan’s Kamran Akmal who has 60 dismissals from 58 T20 Internationals.

India rode on Rohit Sharma's unbeaten century and Hardik Pandya's four-wicket haul to breeze past England by seven wickets at the County Ground on Sunday to clinch the three-match T20I series 2-1.

Chasing 199 for victory, Rohit remained not out on 100 off 56 balls, and including 11 fours and five sixes. This was the right-hander's third century in the game's shortest format, making him just the second player to make three tons.

Put in, England posted 198/9 despite making a blistering start thanks to medium pacer Pandya's heroics with the ball. The 24-year-old returned career-best figures of 4/38. In reply, India made 201/3 in 18.4 overs.
