Mahendra Dhoni is easily the most popular batsman in India at present. His swashbuckling batting and his long flowing mane have made him the latest poster boy. Despite being rather heavily built, Mahendra Dhoni has not allowed any scope for complaint of ineptness in wicket keeping. As far as his batting is concerned it has done nothing if not prospered. Mahendra Dhoni's highest score of 183 runs from 145 balls brought many records crashing down. The score broke Adam Gilchrist's record to become the highest one-day total by a wicket keeper. Saeed Anwar's record of most runs off boundaries was also broken. The inning also exceeded the record of maximum sixes by an Indian, a record previously held by Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly, both of whom had hit six sixes in their innings. Mahindra Dhoni has an amazing strike rate of over 100 and has so far hit more sixes than his one-day appearances.

Mahendra Dhoni enjoys a high ranking in the ICC one-day ranking for batsmen. In fact, he held the premier position for quite a long time. Mahindra Dhoni is an important part of the Indian team that is gearing itself for the World Cup in 2007. gives information on Mahendra Dhoni and other Great Cricket Players.
