As soon as MS Dhoni got winning runs in the India-Zimbabwe match, not only Team India was able to keep their winning streak intact in the World Cup so far, but our brilliant captain MS Dhoni also made a record of being the only Indian captain to have won 99 matches in the ODI matches. 

This particular victory happens to be the 10th in a row for Team India in World Cups. Prior to today’s match, vibrant MS Dhoni was able to maintain a very impressive ODI average of 52.14. He is not only a very clever statistician but also a great motivator who keeps his cool even in the most challenging conditions.

Dhoni is so dedicated to team India that he is yet to see his newly born daughter. Even in today’s match Team India had already lost 4 important wickets but it was the sensible batting by MS Dhoni that Team India could win this match. Not only he batted well but he landed an all out support to Raina playing on other end in finishing his ton.  

Also in this encounter, Team India got past another record partnership for 5th wicket when they crossed 141 runs mark. Incidentally, the last 5th wicket partnership record was made by Ajay Jadeja and Robin Singh against Australia in 1999 World Cup.
