Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Monday received the ICC Shield for finishing as the No. 1 ODI team in the Championship table on the April 1, 2013 cut-off date.

In a simple ceremony at the Swalec Stadium in Cardiff, former ICC president David Morgan presented Dhoni a silver salver and a cheque for USD 175,000.

Cheered by a couple of players and members of the team management, Dhoni looked happy to receive the award from the former ICC boss.

India (119 points) still retains the top spot going into the Champions Trophy starting on June 6. Australia (116) and South Africa (113) are No. 2 and No. 3, respectively.

In a brief message to the media, Dhoni said: “This one belongs to the team, not me alone,” before walking off into the dressing room.
