New Delhi: Mahendra Singh Dhoni is unarguably one of India's finest finisher in the shortest format. However, the devastating middle-order batsman would like to change one little piece of statistic during the upcoming Twenty20 World Cup in Bangladesh.

Dhoni is yet to score his maiden half-century in T20 Internationals having featuring in 43 of the 46 matches that India has played so far. Dhoni's aggregate of 772 runs is most by any batsman without a fifty in this format. His highest score is 48 not out against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Dhoni has mainly batted at No 5 or 6 (13 times each) in this format of the game. More often than not, he has walked out towards the end of the innings and has had very little time to bring up the personal milestone.

In the list of most runs without a single half century, Dhoni is followed by South African all-rounder Albie Morkel (521 runs), Gary Wilson (Ireland, 510 runs) and the prolific Hashim Amla (413 runs).
