During the first ODI of the series in Hyderabad, Dhoni became only the fourth Indian batsman to score over 13,000 runs in List A cricket. He joined an elite club, which comprises of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, and Rahul Dravid.
Moreover, MS was involved in an unbeaten 141-run partnership with Kedar Jadhav that powered India to a six-wicket win in Hyderabad.
The 37-year-old also became the leading six-hitter in ODIs for India surpassing the Indian opener, Rohit Sharma. Dhoni smashed his 216th six on Saturday to achieve the milestone. As far as the series is concerned, with victories in Hyderabad and Nagpur, hosts India lead the five-match rubber 2-0.
The Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, and his men will be looking forward to taking an unassailable 3-0 series lead at the JSCA International Stadium in Ranchi.
