New Delhi: Mahendra Singh Dhoni is ready to join the prestigious '300 Club' in ODI cricket when India take on Sri Lanka in the fourth match of the ongoing series on Thursday at Colombo.
Since making debut in 2002, in these 16 years, he has created some enviable records and helped Indian win hosts of matches. He rightfully has earned the stature of a living legend.
But the 36-year-old still make it a point to sweat it out, jostling with younger team-mates when it comes to practice. Yes, he is still one of the fittest cricketers around. But with age catching up, that claim will soon be irrelevant.
Meanwhile, on the eve of the penultimate match of the ODI series, Dhoni was seen doing some unsual things. It's a known fact that he loves to bowl. But today, he was going full throttle.
India have already took an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series. Earlier, Virat Kohli & Co have won the three-match Test series 3-0.
