Dhoni win 100th ODI

Mahendra Singh Dhoni achieved the memorable milestone of recording 100 ODI wins as captain after leading India to a resounding victory against Bangladesh in the World Cup quarterfinals on Thursday.

 

Dhoni is the first non-Australian captain to achieve the feat — in his 178th ODI — as he got past South Africa’s Hansie Cronje, who won 99 ODIs for his side. Ricky Ponting, with 165 ODI wins as captain, and Allan Border (107) are the two Australian greats leading the chart in the 50-overs format.

 

Dhoni, who remains the only captain to win all three ICC tournaments – World T20 (2007), World Cup (2011) and Champions Trophy (2013), has also recorded 11 straight wins, including 4 in the last edition, in the showpiece event and is only second to Australia’s winning streak of 24 games under Ponting (21) and Steve Waugh (3).
