Mahendra Singh Dhoni became the first Indian wicket-keeper to effect 400 dismissals in ODIs when he had Aiden Markram stumped during the third match between India and South Africa at Newlands in Cape Town on Wednesday.

Dhoni became only the fourth glovesman to achieve the milestone in limited overs cricket after Kumar Sangakkara (482), Adam Gilchrist (472) and Mark Boucher (424).

Dhoni is the only wicketkeeper to have more than 100 stumpings to his credit in the shorter format of the game.

Stand-in captain Markram was beaten by a flighted delivery from chinaman Kuldeep Yadav and Dhoni was quick to whip off the bails in the 17th over of the innings.
