Former Team India captain MS Dhoni was one of the best wicketkeepers to have graced the sport. He is known for his brilliant presence of mind and being a wicketkeeper of CSK, he is always alert behind the stumps.
Dhoni has time and again affected brilliant stumpings and also run several batsmen out with his tactics. The veteran retired from international cricket in late August 15, 2020.
However, he is still playing for Chennai Super Kings in the cash-rich Indian Premier League. As of now, the tournament was postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India shifted the tournament to the UAE. The revised IPL will kick off on September 19 with the final scheduled to be played on October 15.

Kishan who scored a fifty on his ODI debut pulled off a sensational trick during the second ODI against Sri Lanka. The second game is currently being taking place at R.Premadasa Stadium, Colombo.
