MS Dhoni Indian captain MS Dhoni has announced his retirement from Test cricket with immediate effect following the third Test of the ongoing four-match series against Australia, at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).Here is a look at his most important records in Test cricket: 

#1 10,000 international runs as captain

MS Dhoni is only the fifth player to score 10,000 plus runs in international cricket as a captain. With 10,018 runs so far, he is fifth on the list; Ricky Ponting (15440), Graeme Smith (14878), Stephen Fleming (11561) and Allan Border (11062) occupy the first four spots respectively. 

Dhoni was the first Indian Wicket-keeper to score more than 4000 Test Runs. He is currently the third highest run scorer in test cricket as a wicket-keeper batsman.

With age on his side, he is likely to go past Border and Fleming and end up at the third spot by the time he calls it a day from international cricket.
