Ind vs Aus: The big achievement Dhoni has achieved in Melbourne


MS DHONI

In the third match between India and Australia played in Melbourne, former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has achieved a special position. In the third ODI in Melbourne, Dhoni scored his 34 runs in Australia and completed his 1000 ODI runs. This can be Dhoni's last ODI match on Australia's land. Since the 2019 World Cup is being speculated to take his retirement, then if Dhoni does not redeem this opportunity, he would have remained silent on this issue throughout his life. In this innings, Dhoni also imposed his third half-century of the current series. Dhoni has also hat-trick of half-centuries in his home against Australia.

The fourth Indian to do this
Prior to Dhoni, three Indian players have completed 1000 ODI runs on Australian soil. These include Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Now Dhoni has become the fourth batsman to achieve this feat. Prior to this match, Dhoni needed 34 runs to reach this milestone, and in the 29th over, he crossed the score by pitting Peter Siddle to the boundary.

Dhoni scored three half-centuries in three matches

Dhoni finished the 70th ODI half-century with 74 balls facing the Melbourne Cricket Ground. This was his third consecutive half century in this series. Dhoni has also scored half-centuries four times in three or more consecutive matches. This is the fifth chance when it did. He last held three or more consecutive matches in the fifties in January 2014.

Earlier, in the first match played in Sydney, he scored a half century by playing a slow innings. He was also criticized for that slow half-century, although the innings was the demand for the situation. In the second match, he again scored 55 runs in 54 balls and not only finished the match but also gave India victory.
