MS Dhoni’s achievements are no secret to the cricketing fraternity. One of the most astute and successful skippers in the world, MS Dhoni has guided India to all the ICC trophies that there is. If winning for India was not enough, the 38-year old has also won three titles for the Chennai Super Kings.
The Jharkhand cricketer is also an outstanding gloveman and a brisk runner between the wickets. Despite that, the former Indian captain has been involved in some run-outs that managed to change the entire complexion of the game. Right from his international debut to MS Dhoni’s last competitive match so far, the veteran has indulged in some tragic run-outs.
We take a look at five instances when MS Dhoni was involved in saddening run-outs:
MS Dhoni’s debut:
MS Dhoni belongs to the category of cricketers who endured a horror debut match but went on to script his name in the record books. In his first ODI in 2004 against Bangladesh, the 38-year old arrived at the crease at seven and was run-out in the very first ball, bagging a golden duck.
The right-handed batsman played the ball towards square leg and hurried for a single. Unfortunately, the fielder came around quickly and by the time the keeper broke the stumps, Dhoni found himself several yards short of reaching home.
