During the India-Australia ODI series opener, the former Indian skipper MS Dhoni impressed his fans with one magnificent six at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

Dhoni who came to bat with India at 64 for 4 produced a brilliant rear-guard action with young all-rounder Hardik Pandya. The duo added a 118-run stand for the six-wicket and it later turned out to be the match-winning partnership as India beat Australia by 26 runs in the rain-affected game.

Well, Dhoni made 79 off 88 balls with the help of four fours and a two sixes.

In the process, he also became only the fourth Indian batsman to hit 100 fifties in ODI after Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly.

But the highlight of Dhoni’s innings was the last over six off James Faulkner. MSD came out and made room, before going inside out over long-off. The ball went way back into the crowd, some 30 rows back.
