MS Dhoni creates an unwanted world record in the 3rd T20I against England

Posted On

In the 3rd T20I of the recently concluded series between India and England, Team India’s former skipper MS Dhoni created a world record which only very few of the cricketing fans are aware of.

After a decade-long T20I career that had spanned 76 matches, Dhoni scored his maiden T20I fifty in his 66th innings, thereby creating a world record for the most number of innings to score a maiden T20I fifty, beating Gary Wilson‘s mark of 42 innings.

At the M.Chinnaswamy stadium, Mahi smashed his career-best T20I score, including his maiden T20I fifty off 32 balls, final score of 56 off 36 balls, beating his previous-best of 48 not-out against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground in 2012.

The hard-hitting batsman also completed his 5000 runs in T20 matches at Bengaluru.
