MS Dhoni, the former Indian skipper, had entered the cricketing world as an unorthodox wicket-keeper with a bulls-eye, who could wield the willow with great success. However, Dhoni introduced himself on the international stage by hitting a whirlwind 148 off 123 balls against the team Pakistan in only his fifth ODI in Vizag.
While many cricket experts thought, that Dhoni lacks technique and skills, Dhoni shut everyone’s mouth with an unbeaten knock of 183 off just 145 balls against Sri Lanka in Jaipur on this very day, 13 years ago in 2005. Yes, this day marked the beginning of MS Dhoni as one of the most destructive players of Indian squad. This day MS Dhoni scored his highest ODI runs in Jaipur.
The official handle of BCCI posted a throwback video of the same knock and people are going crazy with the nostalgia of watching MS Dhoni and his helicopter shots.
Here, have a look at the throwback video of MS Dhoni posted by BCCI :

Dhoni is no more a force! Far from a finisher now. Age is catching up it seems. But he gave us many thrilling games. My salute to him.
