MS Dhoni in action during a cricket match

The 2nd T20I of the three-match series between India and England is not just a game, but it is former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni's 500th International match for India. It's an auspicious occasion as the wicket-keeper batsman joins an elite club which only the prestige cricketers are a part of. 

Dhoni becomes the third Indian after Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid to play 500 international matches for Team India as the Master Blaster has played 664 matches for India, whereas India's 'Wall' has played 508 matches for the Men in Blue.

Dhoni has had a fruitful and prosperous career since he represented India back in 2004 and his list of accolades defines who he is. 

The young lad from Ranchi has come a long way as till date (July 6) as Dhoni has played 90 Tests, 318 ODIs and 92 T20I matches. 

Comparisons with the other players is a distinction of its own as the former skipper was done and won it all with India.
