Kumar Sangakkara Corrects ICC On Its Post On Dhoni’s Birthday, Wins Hearts On Twitter

MS Dhoni, the former Indian cricketer who is also famous among his fans as Captain Cool, turned 40 yesterday and best wishes poured in from all over the world on the social media networks. There is no denying the fact that Dhoni is one of the most respected cricketers of the cricket world and his fan following is not just limited to India but he has fans all across the globe.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) also wished the former Indian wicketkeeper-batsman by posting a video of 1.34 minutes duration in which MS Dhoni is seen stumping many batsmen of various countries. The title of the video was, “MS Dhoni- The Quickest Hands in the East” and it was posted with the caption, “‘Only for a fraction of a second and Dhoni, like lightning, had those bails off.’ Happy birthday to one of the sharpest keepers in cricket history.”

Here is the video:

The video was loved by online users as till the time this article was written, it was liked by more than 36K people and over 7K users shared it.

The video was also noticed by the former Sri Lankan cricketer Kumar Sangakkara who is also touted as one of finest wicketkeeper-batsmen of his time and he didn’t delay in correcting the ICC by telling them that Dhoni had quickest hands in the whole world when he used to play and not just in the east.

Kumar Sangakkara tweeted, “Quickest hands in the world during his time not just the East”.

The Indian cricket fans loved Kumar Sangakkara’s reaction and praised him for his humble remark.











As far as Dhoni’s stumping is concerned, he has 195 stumpings to his name at the international level which includes 38 in the purest form of the game, 123 in the ODIs and 34 in the shortest format (T20I). In the IPL, Dhoni has been leading Chennai Super Kings since its inauguration in 2008 and he has done 39 stumpings in his IPL career. These stats are more than enough to prove the caliber of MS Dhoni as a wicketkeeper who is also among the greatest finishers as well as one of the best skippers of all times.

Mahi is the only skipper to win all the three ICC tournaments – 2007 T20I World Cup, 2011 World Cup and 2013 Champions Trophy and he is also the second most successful skipper in the IPL as CSK has won the title three times under his leadership.

Fans of the legendary cricketer will be able to see him on the ground once again soon as Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has confirmed that it is going to conduct the remaining matches of the IPL 2021 in UAE in the month of September-October.
