According to sources Mahendra Singh Dhoni played a key role in India's win over Australia in the 1st ODI in Chennai on Sunday. Dhoni's 79 off 88 balls helped India post a competitive 281 for seven after India's top-half was blown away for only 87 runs. Dhoni’s fifty was his 66th in ODI cricket and 100th of his international career.
Meanwhile the 36 year old has 33 Test and 1 T20I fifty on his resume. Social media was flooded with congratulatory messages for the wicketkeeper cum batsman after he added another feather to his illustrious cap. The list of cricketers applauding Dhoni included batting legend Sachin Tendulkar.
Dhoni on his part hit four
boundaries and two sixes both coming down the track and lofting over extra
cover off pacers. The former skipper played 88 balls. The two sixes were the
kind of shots that one doesn't associate with Dhoni maximums over extra cover.
Dhoni also added 72 runs for the seventh wicket with Bhuvneshwar Kumar (32 off
30 balls) in only 8.5 overs which took India beyond 280 plus total something
that looked unlikely at the halfway stage.
