During 2009 ICC Champions Trophy in a match against West Indies, Dhoni handed over the keeping responsibility to Dinesh Karthik and took charge of the bowling. the Windies were already 49/4 when Dhoni came to bowl. The fourth ball the oversaw him dismissing Travis Dowlin which eventually turned out to be only ODI wicket of MS Dhoni.

When he did not represent India
