Port of Spain, July 12: When MS Dhoni is around, the game is never over for India. Time and again he has won matches for India in run chases and it was yet again his cool head that took the team to Celkon Mobile Cup tri-series title against Sri Lanka.
It was a tense finish and Dhoni (45 not out) did not disappoint the fans. With 15 needed off the final over and just the last man Ishant Sharma for company, Captain Cool blitzed 6, 4 and a 6 to seal the victory. India were chasing 202 and a mid-inning collapse made it a thriller.
