Former India skipper MS Dhoni joined Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, and Rohit Sharma to become the fourth Indian batsman to register 1000+ runs in Australia. For his consistent show in the three-match ODI series, MS Dhoni bagged the Man of the Series. He amassed 193 runs and was dismissed only once. His highest score in the series 87* also took India over the line in the final ODI at MCG, as he did in Adelaide earlier with a breezy 54-ball 55.
In the decider at MCG, Dhoni stitched two crucial 50+ stands with Kohli and later with Kedar Jadhav to take India over the line for a historic win.
