MS Dhoni hits century of half centuries

Former Indian skipper MS Dhoni has been considered as a cult in cricket to many. Now he has achieved another feat in his career by wrapping up the unique record of scoring 100 half centuries across all formats of the game.


The 79 run blitz by Dhoni put India to a total of 281 runs after batting first. The half century studded with four boundaries and two sixes was the 66th ODI half century of one of the finest hard hitters in modern cricket.


Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the 13th cricketer and fourth among Indians to accomplish the feat. Sachin Tendulkar scored highest number of half centuries across formats, he thrashed 164 half centuries.


Rahul Dravid is in the second position with 146 half centuries and Sourav Ganguly stands third with 107 of them.
