Dhoni becomes 5th Indian cricketer to score 10,000 in ODI
Posted Date:-1/12/2019 5:00:23 PM


Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni added another feather in his hat on Saturday as he became the fifth Indian cricketer  to score 10,000 ODI runs for India. The left-handed batsman crossed the 10,000-format in 2017 during the England tour, in which he scored 174 runs for Asia XI in three matches. But in the first one-day match, together with Jason behrendorff, the 37-year-old made his 10,000th run for India in the 50-over format.


After doing so, Dhoni joined Indian cricketers' elite list, who had done so earlier, including Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid and Virat Kohli.


In 330 ODIs for India, the batsmen has scored 10,000 runs at an average of 49.75, including 9 centuries and 67 fifties. Overall, Dhoni is the 12th player in history to join 10,000 runs in ODI


Chasing the target of 289 runs in Sydney, with Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli and Ambati Rayudu, the men began to start poor in blue and scored just four runs on the board. Rohit Sharma got caught up with Dhoni to make a partnership and took India away 100 runs.


Dhoni got late criticism for his poor form in limited overs cricket. In 2018, the former captain managed to score only 275 runs in an average of 25 without a half-century in 20 ODIs.



In addition to the inability to make runs in the board, the 37-year-old had to face criticism for his 71.42 short striker last year. But despite the question mark, he was chosen by Rishabh Pant, who fired all the cylinders in the Test series, and was supported by Captain Kohli and his deputy Rohit Sharma to make an impact in Sydney, MS Dhoni became the fifth player to score 10,000 ODI runs for India.
