MS Dhoni is master behind the wickets. His keeping skills may not be perfect technically, but he is good in his own way. The king of unorthodox keeping has taken social media by storm again with his stumping in ongoing India vs Sri Lanka third ODI at Vizag.

Sri Lanka got a fine start in the third ODI despite losing one wicket early. Thanks to Upal Tharanga who scored 95 runs in his 82 balls stay at the crease. 

The visitors were cruising towards a big score when MS Dhoni and Kuldeep Yadav together decided to pull them back. Tharanga, who hit 12 fours and 3 sixes were stumped by Dhoni on Kuldeep's delivery. 

Kuldeep used the surface brilliantly and bowled at a good pace. MS Dhoni was impressed with the young man too.

The former Indian skipper Dhoni had reached his 100th stumpings against the same opposition. Dhoni, who made his debut in 2004 against Bangladesh, achieved the feat in his 301st ODI against Sri Lanka in Colombo, when he whipped off the bails to remove Akila Dananjaya of leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal's bowling.

Bangladesh's Rajin Saleh was Dhoni's maiden stumping in 2004.

Here's the video of Tharanga's stumping:
