MS Dhoni equals Mohammad Azharuddin’s record: Ind vs NZ

Since the last decade, the former Indian captain MS Dhoni has been a backbone for the Indian cricket team. Since his debut in 2004, there have been many instances where Dhoni managed to win it for India from almost an impossible situation.

He has now joined an elite list as he played the 2nd One Day International against the New Zealand on Saturday. Dhoni now joins the list of most number of ODIs for India.

Sachin Tendulkar is leading the list with 463 ODIs, with Rahul Dravid on number two with 340 ODIs. Mohammad Azharuddin is the joint-third as Dhoni has played 334 ODIs for India and 3 ODIs for Asia XI.

Team India managed to make 324/4 against New Zealand in the second contest of the five-match series at the Bay Oval on Saturday. Dhoni (48 not out) joined Rahane in the middle as the two steadily lifted India near the 300-run mark before he fell to Ferguson in the 46th over.

Team India takes 2-0 lead in the five-match series as India bowled out New Zealand for 234 in 40.2 overs, 90 runs short of the target, in the second One Day International at Bay Oval.
