Mahendra Singh Dhoni eyes 10,000 runs, 300 catches in ODIs in India vs England match

Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the buccaneering wicketkeeper-batsman, is on the cusp of another record. Dhoni needs just 33 runs to reach the 10,000-run mark in One Day Internationals (ODIs) and can become the fourth Indian batsman after Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Saurav Ganguly to achieve the landmark.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the buccaneering wicketkeeper-batsman, is on the cusp of another record. Dhoni needs just 33 runs to reach the 10,000-run mark in One Day Internationals (ODIs) and can become the fourth Indian batsman after Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Saurav Ganguly to achieve the landmark.

The Jharkhand player has scored 9,967 runs in 318 ODIs and has 11 players ahead of him in the list of leading ODIs scorers. He has 9,793 runs when batting for India and 174 for Asia XI. He will emulate Sri Lankan Kumar Sangakkara who is the only wicketkeeper-batsman in the list of top 10 ODI run scorers with 14,234 runs in 404 matches.

Apart from Dhoni, Indian captain Virat Kohli too is nearing 10,000 runs in ODIs. Kohli has 9,588 from 208 ODIs before the first match against England on Thursday (July 12, 2018).
