Day of Dhoni

How many ODI matches do you know of where a score of 138 has been completely eclipsed? Today, we got that contest. KC Sangakkara, the SL opener scored a cool 138 runs not out to take Sri Lanka to 298.

Enter Dhoni, the Indian wicketkeeper, who then annihilated the SL bowlers with his 183 not out. He smashed 10 (!) sixes. It's funny to look at the scorecard here. Take a look at Dhoni's stats in the match. The column for 6s was only made to handle 6s in the single digits. Since Dhoni hit 10 sixes, the entire row has shifted to the left and is no longer aligned properly. I'll call this the Dhoni Effect.

Truly a magnificent day for ODI cricket.
