MS Dhoni Becomes Fifth Indian To Score 10,000 ODI Runs


Mahendra Singh Dhoni became the fifth Indian and 13th batsman overall to score 10,000 runs in the 50-over format when he came out to bat against Australia in the first one-day international in Sydney on Saturday. Dhoni needed just one run to join Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid and Virat Kohli on the elite list. Before the first ODI against Australia, Dhoni had accumulated a total of 10,173 runs in the 50-over format, however, the record also contained the 174 runs which he smashed against the Africa XI, while representing the Asia XI in a three-match rubber in 2007.

Dhoni, who made his 50-over debut for India in December 2004, has 16 international centuries to his name and effected more than 800 dismissals behind the stumps.
