It was a charity match, and the result doesn’t matter as the game was for a good cause – to help the British army personals and their families. Still, MS Dhoni wanted to be a winning side, showing how much he loves the game.
The India limited-over captain showed why he is still one of the most dangerous and explosive batsmen in world cricket. MS Dhoni steered the Help for Heroes XI to a comprehensive four-wicket win over the Rest of World, with an explosive innings.
MS Dhoni made an unbeaten 22-ball 38, hitting four boundaries and a mammoth six in the proceedings. The innings also showed the Captain Cool hasn’t lost his midas touch, and preparing well for the forthcoming series against South Africa.
Batting at number five, MS Dhoni ensured that he took his team over the line, also earning the man of the match award for his side. The Ranchi-born also constructed a couple of crucial partnership for sixth and seventh wicket.
