M. S. Dhoni achieved yet another milestone during the second One-day International against England at Lord's. The 37-year-old breached the 10,000-run mark in ODIs - fourth Indian batsman to do so after Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid.

Dhoni came out to the crease when India was struggling in chase of England's 322 and couldn't do much with the bat to change the team's fortune. He fell to Plunkett for 37 after facing 59 balls, with India then being bowled out for 236 and England drawing level the three-match series.

The former India captain also became the second wicket-keeper batsman after Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara to reach the feat. Among the 12 batsmen in the 10k club, it was Sanath Jayasuriya, who was the fastest to the milestone.

Virat Kohli is the next India batsman, who is close on the heels of Dhoni, with 9708 runs from 210 matches.

Earlier in the day, Dhoni also became the fourth wicket-keeper to complete 300 ODI catches after Adam Gilchrist (417), Mark Boucher (403) and Kumar Sangakkara (402).
