MS Dhoni took the catch of Jason Roy to bring up the feat. But, he is the second wicketkeeper in the world to this feat. Former South African cricketer AB de Villiers has 65 T20 catches, mind you they were not internationals.
Earlier in the day, India won the toss in the all-important decider at Bristol. This is the 3rd T20I in the three-match series and the series is locked at 1-1.
India have surprisingly dropped Kuldeep Yadav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar sits out and Deepak Chahar and Sidharth Kaul make it to the XI.
England got off to a belligerent start with 74 for no loss at the end of the powerplay. England finally lost a wicket in the form of Jos Buttler and are currently at 132 for 3 in 13 overs.
MS Dhoni also took his 51st catch to dismiss the English captain Eoin Morgan. Morgan was looking to slog it out of the ground, only to get a top-edge, MSD called for it and took it, though the wicket came in-between his catch.
It seems England are on course to get 200. For India, it is very important they keep England under 200.
