Trinidad, July 12 (ANI): Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni had led his side over to victory against Sri Lanka by a wicket as he hit 16 runs off the last over in a nail-biting Tri-Nations series final at Port of Spain.
Ravindra Jadeja did the damage for India, taking 4-23 off 7.5 overs, while Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ishant Sharma waded in with two wickets apiece.
Although India slumped from 139-3 to 152-7, despite Rohit Sharma hitting 58, with Sri Lanka's Lasith Malinga capturing the wicket of Bhuvneshwar Kumar to leave India on 167-8, however, India's Vinay Kumar came to the rescue and added 15 with Dhoni.
The report further said that after last man Sharma left Dhoni needing 15 off the last over after scoring just two runs, Dhoni smashed a massive six to leave India requiring nine off four balls, after which he scored a boundary and then took another six to see his side home by one wicket and two balls to spare.
