MS Dhoni might have been out of action for the past five months but he has still maintained his top spot as the decade’s numero uno wicketkeeper in ODIs as far as statistics go. Dhoni is on a sabbatical since India’s semi-final exit at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 in July.
The 38-year-old former India captain effected 242 dismissals ( between 2010-2019) in 196 matches that included 170 catches and 72 stumpings, the most by any ‘keeper in ODIs.
Next in the list is England’s world cup winning wicketkeeper Jos Buttler who in 142 matches has 202 dismissals including 171 catches and 31 stumpings. Sri Lanka legend Kumar Sangakkara, who retired in 2015, completes the top-three with 188 dismissals in 142 matches.
