Now talking about the match today at Thiruvananthapuram, the Indian players like MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma stand on the threshold of breaking records. MS Dhoni who got out on 23 runs in the last match in Mumbai, just needs one run to get to the 10,000 run milestone. He will be fifth Indian to achieve this feat.
