The decision perhaps irked Dhoni, who was batting at 93, vented his anger on the very next ball. The 34-year-old swashbuckler hit the next ball for a huge six at straight region.

The ball went sailing and covering a distance of a 100 meters as the crowd went berserk to watch former India captain striking the ball in his trademark fashion.

Dhoni crossed the three figure mark after a while with his last hundred coming way back in 2013 when he struck an unbeaten 139 against Australia at Mohali.

He ended up hammering 10 fours and half a dozen sixes, scoring his 10th ODI hundred in the process and first since handing over captaincy to Virat Kohli. It was raining sixes and fours especially in the last 10 overs with India lapping up 120 runs.
