Legendary Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni achieved a remarkable feat today as he became the 6th Indian to play 300 One Day Internationals for the country. The destructive right hander joined a list of elites as he took on Sri Lanka in the 4th ODI of a 5 match series in the island nation. Sachin Tendulkar (463), Rahul Dravid (344), Mohammad Azharuddin (334), Sourav Ganguly (311) and Yuvraj Singh (304) are the Indians who have already crossed the 300 match mark.
The main story:
Yuvraj Singh, who was not included in the squad for the Sri Lanka series took to his official Twitter handle to congratulate his long time teammate. The valiant left hander paid tribute to Dhoni by hailing him as one of the greatest finishers of the game. Yuvraj also hoped for the inventor of the helicopter shot to have a magnificent outing at the Premadasa.
Yuvraj Singh’s tweet read “Congratulations
@msdhoni on a great milestone ! One of the best finishers of the modern game. Go well today”.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni did play well in his 300th ODI as the batsman contributed with 49 useful runs to the huge Indian total remaining unbeaten till the end. Centuries from Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma were the anchors of the innings which rode India to a mammoth total of 375 runs. Mahendra Singh has grabbed a lot of runs in the series in the previous matches and he continued his good form successfully in the 4th match too. the selectors are keeping a close eye on the aging cricketer and he has certainly lived up to the expectations.
Dhoni and Yuvraj have been involved in several match-winning knocks throughout their career and emerged to be one of the most lethal duos down the order in world cricket. Every target looked small when these two stalwarts took the crease together and the World Cup 2011 final was an example of the same. Dhoni and Yuvraj finished the game successfully remaining at the crease. Dhoni hit the winning six as a jubilant Yuvraj watched from the other end turning the hopes of a billion Indians into reality.
Congratulations @msdhoni on a great milestone ! One of the best finishers of the modern game. Go well today ✌
