MS Dhoni, who became the first cricketer to affect 100 stumpings in ODIs during India’s 5-0 win over Sri Lanka, gave fans a nostalgic moment when he took Virat Kohli and Co for a ride in Jasprit Bumrah’s Man-of-the-Series awarded car. It was a special day for Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni on Sunday as India swept home a 5-0 series win over Sri Lanka to continue their stunning form. While Kohli led from the front with his 30th century, Dhoni became the first cricketer to complete 100 ODI stumpings when he caught Akila Dananjaya short of his crease off Yuzvendra Chahal’s bowling.
This is what ‘GOD of Cricket’ tweeted about Dhoni:

Indian pacer Jaspreet Bumrah won the Man Of The Series award for his excellent performance in the bilateral series. He struck total 15 wickets in the series and also showed the magic of his bowling by striking 5 wickets and giving off just 27 runs in one of the matches. The car had been awarded to Jasprit Bumrah for his stellar show in the ODI series, where he ended as the highest wicket-taker with 15 scalps at an average of 11.26.
Dhoni, however, had more in store for the fans. After the post-match ceremony concluded in Colombo, he took the entire team for a ride in a car across the Premadasa Stadium. While Rohit Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Bumrah conveniently occupied the back-end of the car, Hardik Pandya and Kedar Jadhav were seen on either side of Dhoni.

Interestingly, MS Dhoni also became the first man in ODI cricket to complete 100 stumpings. It was the 301st ODI match of his career. The previous record was held by Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara at 99. Here’s wishing much more achievements and glory on the side of great MS Dhoni.
