Indian captain MS Dhoni has done it yet again! After Sri Lanka scored just 201 runs, India was at 186 for nine wickets with Dhoni at the crease needing 15 off the last over.
And shot two sixes and a four to win the match with two balls to spare. What an innings that was from Dhoni!. See the Ind vs SL final scorecard here.
Dhoni who was awarded the man of the match for his match winning 45 runs said during the ceremony: ‘I am blessed with a bit of good cricketing sense. I am also blessed with 15 good players on the field and it shows in our results.
“I can look for 15 runs in the last over and I backed myself as the bowler was not so experienced. I did not take a chance against Malinga or Mathews who are experienced, but luckily it worked out for us. It was a 2 kilogram bat and it helps in power hitting.”
Dhoni once again tore the heart of the Lankans by scoring a six to win a big final. In the 2011 World Cup, he won the game with a six. Again now in this Tri-series, Dhoni has won the series again with a massive six. Sri Lanka will forever remember these Dhoni innings’.
After missing a few games due to injury, he returns for the final, batted till the end, rotated the strike and got 15 runs off the last over with some magnificent hits.
Watch the highlights of the last over, Dhoni batting, last wicket, need 15 runs.
