MS Dhoni becomes first Indian skipper to register 100 ODI wins

Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni continues to compile cricket records. On Thursday, he became the first Indian captain to register 100 One Day International matches, after leading Men in Blue to a 109-run victory over Bangladesh in their 2015 ICC World Cup quarter-final match in Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Regarded as one of the best captains in the limited overs format, Dhoni is riding on a splendid spell leading the defending champions to a 10 successive World Cup wins before the match.

Thanks to a well-timed Rohit Sharma century, India set a target of 303 runs for the minnows, which proved enough for the two-time world champions to book a last-four place.

The 33-year-old is also the first non-Australian to lead a national side to 100 wins in the 50 overs match. Aussie legends Alan Border and Ricky Ponting were the other captains to do so.

With the win, MS Dhoni’s team became the first ever side to take 70 wickets in seven consecutive World Cup games.
