Captain Cool breaks two records in one day

Those who question the fitness levels and and playing capability of Captain Cool had an answer on Sunday, when the 37 year old MS Dhoni broke two world records on the same day.

During the third match against England, in Bristol, Dhoni first dismissed opener Jason Roy and granted Deepak Chahar his first international wicket. Later he helped Hardik Pandya dismiss Eoin Morgan and Alex Hales. And then it was the turn Jonny Bairstow and Liam Plunkett to be caught behind the wickets.
