Playing in his 300th ODI, former India captain had an outing to remember against Sri Lanka in the 4th ODI on Thursday. Dhoni, who made 49 not out, became only the sixth Indian and the second wicketkeeper-batsman after Kumar Sangakkara to play 300 ODIs. He also shared 101 runs with Manish Pandey (50 not out) after the visitors were reduced to 274-5. The sixth-wicket stand helped India post an imposing 375/5 at the R. Premadasa stadium. Dhoni also played a key role in helping debutant Shardul Thakur claim his first ODI scalp. Opener Niroshan Dickwella caught by Dhoni off the Mumbai pacer's bowling. The batsman was given not out by the on-field umpire but India decided to review the decision after Kohli looked at Dhoni who seemed convinced the batsman was out. TV replays showed the ball had brushed the bat.

Fans were thrilled after Dhoni got another review spot on.
