CHENNAI: Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni today reached the coveted landmark of 100 international half-centuries across all three formats. Dhoni was dismissed for 79 against Australia in the first ODI, here today.
The 36-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman is now the 13th cricketer in the history of international cricket to complete a ton of 50's. Among Indians, he is fourth after Sachin Tendulkar (164), Rahul Dravid (146) and Sourav Ganguly (107).
It was Dhoni's 66th ODI half-century in his 302nd ODI, apart from 33 that he got in 90 Tests and the one in 78 T20 Internationals. Dhoni now has 9737 runs in ODIs and requires 263 more runs to complete the 10,000-run milestone in the 50-over format.
