MS Dhoni completes 7000 runs in ODI cricket, the 7th from India, overall 32nd batsman to reach the mark in that format.
India's most consistent batsman in ODIs ... when it comes to consistently failing that is. Check out the 'talented' Rohit Sharma's consistent scores in his last nine games: 0, 4, 68, 5, 0, 0, 4, 4, 4.
Pitch report: It has been raining in Chennai last few days, so there is bound to be moisture in the surface. On top of that, it is an early morning start. The TV commentators say it's a win-toss-bowl-first pitch.
