Former Pakistani captain raised questions on MS Dhoni’s wicketkeeping, said this big thing
Dhoni is a big name
Latif said on his official YouTube channel, “Dhoni was a wicket-keeper batsman. Obviously Dhoni is a big name. But if I go by the statistics, his drop percentage is 21 percent, which is very high.” Latif also said that the statistics to measure the success of a keeper came much later, while Australia legend Adam Gilchrist and former South Africa star Mark Boucher were very good wicketkeepers.
currently de kock best
Latif said “You can’t use my record because this particular record came into existence from 2002 or 2003. We had played by then. Adam Gilchrist’s percentage was just 11, Mark Boucher was very good. Tim Paine of Australia Started well but dropped too many catches in the end.” Latif further claimed that South Africa’s Quinton de Kock is currently the best wicketkeeper. “If you look at the best in the last 15 years, I would say Quinton de Kock is fantastic.
Record for most stumpings
Dhoni has 195 stumpings in all three formats in his career, which is the most. Apart from this, MS Dhoni, the captain of IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings, also holds the record for the fastest stumping with a time of 0.08 seconds. In 2018, Dhoni stumped West Indies’ Keemo Paul in an ODI match in Mumbai, which stunned the world. Dhoni had unbelievably blown the bails before Paul even came to mind.
