Boy, what an explosive knock! It is terrific to see India send Dhoni at number 3 when most needed. After keeping for 50 overs and then returning to slam 183 not out, Dhoni played virtually for the entire day. This speaks highly of Dhoni’s stamina (he has the energy to whack 10 sixes!) apart from his impressive abilities as a batsman. Dinesh Karthick should be really worried about his Test slot. He hasn’t done much in the domestic matches either.
With a hat-trick of victories, Rahul Dravid’s team India seems to be on a roll. Two of SL’s four key players seem to have really regained their form with this ODI. But with a decent total in this ODI, SL might be on its way to finding its form.
