India cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni set two new world records during the third T20I of the series against England as became the first wicket-keeper to take 50 catches in T20Is and also the first wicket-keeper to take five catches in one innings.

Jason Roy (67) became Dhoni's 50th victim after he was dismissed off the bowling of debutant Deepak Chahar, who picked his maiden T20I wicket in the process.

In total, Dhoni took five catches in the innings and now sits firmly at top of the pile, as the second wicket-keeper in the list is West Indies star Dinesh Ramdin, who has 34 catches to his name.
