MS Dhoni became the fifth Indian batsman to score 10,000 ODI runs for India, on January 12. Dhoni achieved this feat during the first ODI match against Australia Down Under on Saturday. The wicketkeeper-batsman had already crossed the 10,000-run mark in the ODI format; however, the tally included some runs he made playing for the Asia XI team.

MS Dhoni has joined a list of elite Indian players – Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly Rahul Dravid, and Virat Kohli – to have joined the 10,000 ODI-runs club for India. It is heartening to see how Dhoni slowly and gradually crossed the landmark figure, given the fact his batting position has majorly been in the middle order, throughout his ODI career.
