Known for his demolition of opposition bowlers, Gilchrist have managed an impressive 9610 ODI runs during his illustrious career and is considered the greatest wicket-keeper batsman in the game of cricket.
Dhoni who is arguably the best finisher in the recent times has been the pivot for India in the lower middle order as he has always helped India finish on a high while batting at the death. The 35-year old is one of the all-time greats in Indian cricket as he has led India in two World Cup triumphs.
Having promoted up the order in the third ODI against New Zealand at Mohali, Dhoni managed a great partnership with Virat Kohli which has helped India come out of a difficult situation and clinch the match quite comprehensively at the end with Virat scoring 154*.
During his knock, Dhoni has managed to break a number of records which include 9000 ODI runs barrier as well as 15000 International runs making him the first Indian wicketkeeper ever to do so.
He has also surpassed the most sixes by an Indian record which was held by Sachin Tendulkar earlier for his 195 sixes. The match has also helped Dhoni break yet another record as he became the first Indian to complete 150 stumpings in international cricket.
Adam Gilchrist who wished lately but appropriately has hailed both Sangakkara and Dhoni with a single pic which was captioned: ”A day or so late, but huge congrats to #MSDhoni on reaching #9000 ODI runs. Cool, calm, collected at all times. Never more so than in the image above #CWCup2011 The bloke behind him went ok as well! #Sanga”.
