MS Dhoni on Friday showed why he is still the most effective finishers by remaining unconquered at 87 and helping India win ODI series in Australia 2-1.
India registered seven wicket win over Australia in the third One-Day International at Melbourne Cricket Ground.
With this 3rd ODI win at Melbourne, India created history to win a bilateral series Down Under. It was India’s just second bilateral series down under after the 2016 series, which the host had won 4-1.
Chasing 231, India lost the openers, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan early within the innings and it was absolutely once more Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni laying the foundation with their 54 runs stand for the third wicket.
Australian fast bowler Jhye Richardson for the third time in the three matches series dismissed the Indian skipper.
Dhoni with the help of Kadar Jadhav shared 121 stand in score board in fourth wicket partnership because the match went right down to the wires but India won it with four balls to spare.
