MAHENDRA SINGH DHONI :
An undisputed legend, Mahendra Singh Dhoni stands second on the list with 91 dismissals. Dhoni in 97 innings had got a combination of 57 catches and 34 stumpings. MS Dhoni with a total of 91 tops the charts in men’s T20I.
SARAH TAYLOR :
English keeper-batter, Sarah Taylor is 3rd on the list overall and 2nd on the women’s list. Sarah in her career of 88 innings has got to a combination of 23 catches and 51 stumps forming a total of 74. The figures of 51 stumps shouldn’t be surprising as with her active in international cricket, there was no one in the competition. Lighting hands.
QUINTON DE KOCK :
South African wicket-keeper-opener, Quinton de Kock is 4th overall and 2nd on the men’s list. De Kock has got to 73 dismissals in 65 innings with a combination of catches and stumping being 58 and 15 respectively.
