Harare: Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Wednesday became the fourth wicketkeeper in the world to reach 350 dismissals in one-day internationals, while widening the gap further with his India predecessors.

The limited overs skipper achieved the feat during the ongoing third and final ODI against Zimbabwe, when he caught Elton Chigumbura off medium pacer Jasprit Bumrah in the 33rd over of the innings at the Harare Sports Club.
