Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Sunday completed the coveted landmark of 100 international half-centuries across all three formats with an innings of 79

against Australia in the first ODI, in Chennai.

The 36-year-old Dhoni is the 13th cricketer in the history of international cricket to complete a ton of 50s.

Among Indians, he is fourth after Sachin Tendulkar (164), Rahul Dravid (146) and Sourav Ganguly (107).

It was Dhoni's 66th ODI half-century in his 302nd One-Day International, apart from 33 that he got in 90 Tests and the one in 78 T20 Internationals.

Dhoni has 9737 runs in ODIs and requires 263 more runs to complete the 10,000-run milestone in the 50-over format.
