Mumbai, Oct 29 (CRICKETNMORE):  Mahendra Singh Dhoni's poor run continued in the fourth One-Day International (ODI) against the West Indies on Monday as the former skipper fell one run short of reaching 10,000 ODI runs for India.

Dhoni has accumulated a total of 10,173 runs in the 50-over format however, the record also contains the 174 runs which he smashed against the Africa XI, while representing the Asia XI in a three-match rubber in 2007.

In 2018, the Ranchi stumper has scored just 252 runs in 12 innings, at a below par average of just over 25 along with a strike-rate of 68.10.
