Earlier in the same series Dhoni has equaled the world record of 99 stumping with  Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara and with two ODIs remaining Dhoni needs just one stumping to reach the three-figure mark in the ODI history.

Analysing last two match performances of Dhoni, he has done incredibly well by taking time and willing to perform.
