Former New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum is known to be great friends with former Indian skipper MS Dhoni. The two iconic players are revered as two of the most successful and impactful wicket-keeper batsmen of the modern day cricket. Recently, MS Dhoni became the first wicket keeper in the history of ODI cricket to register 100 stumpings.

The historic moment arrived during the final ODI of the India v Sri Lanka series. Dhoni stumped Akila Dananjaya off the bowling of Yuzvendra Chahal to enter the record books. The good wishes came in flooding from all corners for the superman of the Indian cricket.

The cricket fraternity lauded his achievement as well, with legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar sharing one of the most befitting caption for MSD. Now, Brendon McCullum has also taken to the social media platform Instagram to congratulate Dhoni.

McCullum, who played under the captaincy of MS Dhoni for the Chennai Super Kings in the IPL, has time and again expressed his admiration for the iconic Indian cricketer. His post is now winning the internet for the way he has congratulated and appreciated Dhoni’s efforts.

In his caption, he remarked that he still wonders how Dhoni manages to be so quick. He cited that he ended up having a stiff back after having donned the keeper’s hat for the Kiwis for a decade. But Dhoni continues to the task without any pain or discomfort.

McCullum’s post

“Hell of an achievement MS Dhoni! 100 Stumpings is an insane number! Still wonder how you whip off those bails in a flash especially when you have such a lot many things going on in your head. I have kept wickets for my nation for 10 years. Ended up with a broken back that will keep troubling me for the rest of my life. And then there is this man who has kept wickets all his life in all the formats that he has played in. Plus of course, he has performed the duties of being the captain and the most important batsman of his side. #SuperHuman for sure!” Brendon McCullum wrote.
