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.
