On This Day in 2013:

On this day in 2013, Indias iconic wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni smashed a record 224-run knock against Australia in the Chennai Test

Ms Dhonis magnificent knock of 224 is one that Chennai fans will remember for a long time. Australia had chosen to bat first and they posted a reasonable total of 380 in the first innings with a fine knock of 130 from skipper Michael Clarke. In response, India lost two early wickets before Pujara and Tendulkar got the innings back on track. India were 196/4 when Captain Cool walked out to bat alongside Virat Kohli.

Once the captain was at the crease, the match only seemed to be going Indias way. Dhonis 224 helped India put 572 runs on the scoreboard and take a lead of 192 runs. Eventually, India won the match by eight wickets and Dhoni unsurprisingly was adjudged the Man of the Match.
