Mahendra Singh Dhoni completed 10,000 one-day international runs for India, becoming only the fifth from his country to do so.
While Dhoni was already a part of the 10,000 club in ODI cricket, 174 of those runs had come for Asia XI. Now, the 37-year-old has notched up five figures in ODIs for India as well.
Dhoni reached the mark in the first ODI against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Saturday, 12 January. He started the game on 9,999 runs for India and took seven deliveries to get off the mark and reach the milestone.
