M S Dhoni’s 56/61 guided India to a score of 268.He hit 3 fours and 2 sixes in his innings. Batting with Hardik Pandya who scored 46/37, the pair kept the score board moving. Pandya was caught by Allen off Cottrell’s ball when he tried to hit the ball for a boundary.
At the end of the 50 overs, Dhoni remained unbeaten and Yadav at the other end was yet to open his score.
Despite all the criticism for his slow batting previously, Dhoni proved that he was the man to rely on when he scored runs in the last overs to give India a good total of 268.
Virat Kohli’s stellar 72/82 was the mainstay of the Indian batting.
