The firebrand cricketer is the third fastest Indian to hit the 10,000 mark. Dhoni took 273 innings to hit the 10K mark, the fifth fastest overall and third fastest by an Indian. Ricky Ponting achieved it in 266, Jacques Kallis in 272, Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly in 259 and 263 innings, respectively.
