Dhoni completes 5000 runs in IPL, Sehwag's reaction will surprise you

Mahendra Singh Dhoni amazing captain and amazing batsman. Dhoni will be 42 years old on July 7 this year, but even today, big heroes are seen filling water in front of his fitness. When Dhoni hit two consecutive sixes in the last over in the sixth match of IPL 2023 on Monday, once again there was a wave of happiness among all his fans. This short inning of Dhoni is creating a lot of buzz on social media. Along with scoring 12 runs, Mahendra Singh Dhoni also completed 5000 runs in his IPL career and became the seventh batsman to do so. When former India opener Virender Sehwag was asked about this wonderful achievement of Dhoni, his answer was quite shocking.

When the match got over yesterday, Sehwag said that all these records don't matter to Dhoni. Sehwag said that when you ask Dhoni himself, his answer will be what difference it makes. Even if he has scored five thousand, seven thousand or ten thousand runs. The important thing is to win the trophy, to be the champion. And Dhoni has done that. I don't think he chases after records or thinks about it at all.

Further praising Dhoni, Sehwag said that he has reached here by batting in the middle order. This is a big deal. There is usually an expectation that top-order batsmen will score more runs. MS Dhoni bats either in the middle order or at the end of the overs where he has fewer balls to play.

Despite all this, if he has completed 5000 runs in IPL then it is a great achievement and today's batsmen should take a lesson from him to take advantage of the opportunity wherever it comes. Talking about this record of Dhoni, he has become the overall 7th and 5th Indian batsman.

Before him, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Suresh Raina, David Warner, AB de Villiers have scored five thousand or more runs in IPL. Let us tell you that all the six names I mentioned above are either opener batsmen or land on first or send down. Dhoni is the only batsman in this list who bats lower down the order.
