Here are the top 5 wicket-keepers in terms of stumpings:

Sr. No. Wicket-Keeper Stumpings

2 MS Dhoni (Ind) 86
3 Kumar Sangakkara (SL) 60
4 Dinesh Karthik (Ind) 59

Kamran has been a part of Pakistan’s World T20 winning campaign in 2009 and has also won the second edition of PSL with Peshawar Zalmi. He is also one of the few Pakistanis to lift the Indian Premier League (IPL) title, having won it with Rajasthan Royals in the first-ever season of competition.

Kamran has been one of the most successful batsmen in T20 cricket as well, having scored over 6,000 runs in his T20 career, including 5 centuries at a strike rate of 134.56.

Kamran has been in and out of the national team ever since his T20 debut in 2006. His poor form behind the stumps led him out of the national team, but becoming the first one to reach 100 stumpings landmark proves his excellent glove-work.
