Dhoni surpassed Sri Lankan wicketkeeper Kumar Sangakkara who had 99 stumpings to his credit. At 161, he holds the record for the maximum number of stumpings in ODIs, Tests and T20s combined.

Obviously, social media was in awe of Dhoni. Congratulatory messages poured in on social media.

Among those messages was one from Sachin Tendulkar himself. This:
