If you think MS Dhoni is at the top of the tree in terms of most dismissals by a wicket-keeper in IPL history, unfortunately, you are wrong. This is one wicket-keeper stat in which he is not leading. Dinesh Karthik has the most dismissals by a Wicket-keeper in IPL history.
He has inflicted a total of 124 dismissals from 152 innings. Karthik has taken 94 catches and also has 30 stumpings to his name. However, Dhoni is ahead in terms of stumpings. He has affected 33 stumpings to go with 83 catches which take his tally to 116.
Robin Uthappa didn’t come in as a regular keeper initially. But he kept wickets and has done a pretty good job at that. From 114 innings, he has 90 dismissals that include 58 catches and 32 stumpings. Naman Ojha, Parthiv Patel, Wriddhiman Saha are the other regular wicket-keepers who feature next on the list. Adam Gilchrist and Kumar Sangakkara are the only two overseas wicket-keepers in the top 10.
