MS Dhoni on Sunday created yet another record when he notched up a fine 79-run knock against Australia at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
Dhoni completed his 100 half-centuries in international cricket, becoming the fourth Indian batsman to do so. The 36-year-old has so far scored 33 half-centuries in Test cricket, 66 in ODIs and one in T20Is.
With 164 fifties, Sachin Tendulkar leads the list followed by Rahul Dravid (145) and Sourav Ganguly (106) in terms of making most fifties in international cricket across formats for India.
Sachin Tendulkar shared a memorable photograph of Dhoni from Sunday’s match and congratulated him.
