On the occasion of 70th Republic Day, on Saturday, former Indian captain MS Dhoni has made a significant record for his country in the One-Day Internationals (ODIs). 

Dhoni, who has been serving his nation in cricket since 2004, is right now a part of the Indian team playing the five-match ODI series in New Zealand. On Saturday, during the second ODI at the Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui, Dhoni equalled former Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin for the number of ODIs played for India. 

Dhoni and Azharuddin have played 334 ODIs each for India and are joint third on the chart of the most number of ODIs for India behind the record-holder Sachin Tendulkar (463) and Rahul Dravid (340). 

However, the total number of ODIs played by Dhoni is 337 but for India, he has played 334 and three for Asia. 

Dhoni soon could be seen surpassing Dravid as he needs to play just six more games to do so.

Earlier in the day, Indian captain Virat Kohli won the toss and opted to bat in the second ODI on Saturday. 

India fielded the same playing eleven that played in the first ODI which they won by eight wickets. New Zealand made two changes with Ish Sodhi and Colin de Grandhomme replacing Mitchell Santner and Tim Southee.
