Mahendra Singh Dhoni today became the first Indian batsman to hit 200 sixes in one-day internationals.

Dhoni, who relinquished the limited-overs captaincy earlier this month, also slammed his 10th ODI century in the second match of the ongoing series against England in Cuttack.

Dhoni was on 93 when he pulled Chris Woakes towards deep square leg on the second ball of the 43rd over. But the umpire signaled a dead ball as the ball dropped down after hitting the spider cam.

Dhoni finally perished on 134, blasting 6 sixes and 10 fours. Dhoni is now the -fourth leading batsman in the world with most sixes in ODI cricket after Shahid Afridi (351), Sanath Jayasuriya (270), Chris Gayle (238).
