Throughout his illustrious career, Dhoni established himself as a fearsome hitter of the cricket ball. As time went by, he evolved into a finisher renowned for his calculated aggression and exceptional tactical acumen. His prowess was particularly evident in One Day Internationals (ODIs), where he excelled. Dhoni amassed 10,773 runs in 350 ODIs, boasting an impressive average of 50.57.
With 10 centuries and 73 fifties to his name, Dhoni remains India’s fifth-highest scorer in the format, trailing only the great Sachin Tendulkar who tops the list with 18,426 runs. Furthermore, Dhoni ranks as the 11th most successful ODI batsman of all time.
The fact that he achieved such remarkable numbers while batting lower down the order adds to the awe-inspiring nature of his statistics. MS Dhoni continues to make significant contributions as a player for the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Under his leadership, CSK recently clinched their fifth IPL title.
However, his future participation as a player in IPL 2024 will depend on his fitness, leaving fans eagerly awaiting further updates. MS Dhoni’s legacy remains an integral part of the cricketing world, with his enduring popularity and outstanding achievements cementing his status as one of the game’s all-time greats.
