M.S Dhoni, the best endorsement of coolness and composure in cricket will make his 350th ODI appearance against Sri Lanka today making him the 20th cricketer ever in the history of the game to play these many One Day Internationals.
India has already conquered the ongoing ODI series by conferring on Sri Lanka three straight defeats in the first three ODIs but this still will be a special outing for M.S Dhoni.
M.S Dhoni has two world records to write against his name as he takes the cricket field in the blue jersey today! What are these two world records Mahi would be excited to script?

Maximum stumping in ODIs
Dhoni at present has 100+ stumpings in his bag sharing the record of maximum stumping by a wicket-keeper in One Day Internationals with Kumara Sangakkara.
He needs one more to complete the century of heroics from behind the wickets and also to confer the world record to his name. We are sure even after claiming this award he’d be as composed as he has always been!
What would be special about this achievement is the fact that while Sangakkara reached a tally of 99 in 360 matches Dhoni would be making the record his in a great difference in terms of the number of matches.
Most number of not outs
Well we know M.S Dhoni has a habit of being one of the most perfect finishers of the game.
He stays there till the last and make sure he leads the team to a win and hence he has a tally of 72 not out innings which make him share the world record with Shaun Pollock, the ace proteas all rounder and the Lankan quickie Chaminda Vaas. One more unconquered innings an he makes it to the top!
M.S Dhoni at present has 9608 runs in 299 One Day Internationals with 65 half centuries and 10 centuries credited to his name.
He still seems fit and most importantly willing to play the game and there is no other wicket keeper batsman at present in the pipeline to challenge his position.
So it is more than evident that M.S Dhoni would soon have these two world records dedicated to him. We hope that he makes this miracle happen in today’s game itself and make his 300th One Day International more than just special!
Go Mahi go, go conquer what’s yours!
