India’s star cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni claimed another record under his belt during the second one-day international (ODI) match against England here on Thursday (Jan 15).
MS Dhoni completed his 4000 ODI runs and became only the second Indian batsman after Master Blaster Sachin. Former India captain Rahul Dravid is the third highest scorer for India in ODIs at home. The Wall of Indian cricket aggregated 3406 runs at home pitches.
With 9,116 runs in 284* ODIs, Dhoni is the fifth highest run-getter for India in ODIs. Tendulkar (18,426 runs), Sourav Ganguly (11,221), Dravid (10,768), Mohammad Azharuddin (9378) are the ones above Dhoni.
Dhoni, who also happens to be India’s most successful captain across all formats, resigned as the captain of ODIs and T20Is before the start of India’s ODI and T20I series against England.
