Dhawan shatters couple of records with his excellent ton at Wanderers

Mighty Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan became the first Indian player to smash a ton in his 100th ODI. Australian opener David Warner was the last batsman to achieve the landmark who scored a ton against India in September last year.

Dhawan has scored 4,309 runs, most by an Indian after 100 ODIs. He played a well-fledged inning of 109 runs during the fourth ODI of the six-match series against South Africa at Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.
