In a small yet poignant function here before the start of the fourth ODI on Thursday, Dhoni, for whom this was the 300th 50-over match, was presented with a platinum-gilded bat to mark the occasion.

Kohli presented the memento with all the members of the team, including the support staff, in attendance.

“Ninety per cent of us started our careers under you. It’s an honour to give this memento to him. You will always remain our captain,” said Kohli before the presentation.

The 300th outing became a memorable one for Dhoni (49 n.o.) who once again stemmed the free fall of the Indian innings while raising 100 runs for the unbroken sixth-wicket partnership with Manish Pandey, who marked his return to the playing 11 with his own unbeaten 50 (42b, 4x4). Sailing smoothly at 262 for two, India had slipped to 274 five before Dhoni-Pandey act rescued the visitors.

Shardul Thakur, meanwhile, became the 218th player to make ODI debut for India.
