On Friday, MS Dhoni once again showed his worth to the Indian team with the bat in hand as he took the visitors to a thrilling seven-wicket win.
The former India captain also became the only the fourth Indian to score 1,000 ODI runs on Australian soil after Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.
Going into the decider at MCG, Dhoni needed 36 runs to reach this milestone. Not only did he achieve the landmark, he was crucial to India's cause as the visitors chased 231 to win the match and the three-match series.
Dhoni scored three consecutive half-centuries to take his total tally to 193 runs in three matches at an average of 193 and a strike rate of 73.10. Dhoni was adjudged Man of the Series for his brilliant performance.
