Dhoni scored 183 runs in ODI in Jaipur in 2005
New Delhi. It has been 3 years since Mahendra Singh Dhoni retired from International Cricket. But, he is still playing IPL. But, this journey of his may also end after this season. Under Dhoni’s captaincy, India won 2 World Cups and a Champions Trophy within 4 years. However, Dhoni has also seen a phase when he was struggling to make a place in the team. But, after hitting his first ODI century against Pakistan, his career really started.
After this, he played a blistering inning of 183 runs against Sri Lanka. It was from here that Dhoni got recognition. He made an interesting disclosure related to his cricket journey after the match against Rajasthan Royals.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni said in the presentation after losing the match against Rajasthan Royals, “Sawai Man Singh Stadium in Jaipur is very special for me. My first ODI century came in Vizag. After that I got a guarantee of 10 matches. But the 183 I scored against Sri Lanka in Jaipur sort of sealed my place in the team for a year. I am happy to be back here.
