Dhoni on cusp of joining Sachin, Kohli in elite list

Written by Abhishek Patil

MS Dhoni could find himself in the 17,000-run club in international cricket if he adds 92 runs more to his tally. Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli are two of 5 players in the list.


The year 2019 has seen the return of an in-form and reliable MS Dhoni as he continues to prove all those critics wrong who questioned his continuity in limited overs cricket, especially keeping the ICC World Cup in mind. Having registered numerous milestones to his name, Mahi is now just 92 runs away from reaching 17,000 runs in international cricket, a feat that will put him alongside the likes of Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli.

Questions were raised over Dhoni’s ability in the shortest format after he was ‘blamed’ for India’s defeat in the first T20I against Australia. While it didn’t take long for him to respond with a quick-fire 40-run knock in the second match at Chinnaswamy, India couldn’t bounce back to level the series and ended up suffering a 2-0 defeat.
