Five Times MS Dhoni Finished The Job.

Once again lighting up the IPL with another classic finish, we take a look at five times the wicket-keeper/batter prevailed on the international scene.

Dhoni announces himself: 2005 v Sri Lanka

While Dhoni ended the third of seven ODIs against Sri Lanka with a six, it would be remiss to only acknowledge

The finish in what was a complete batting display that belied his level of experience.

Chasing 299 in Jaipur, Dhoni walked out to bat in the first over, following the loss of Sachin Tendulkar.

The knock turned out to be the beginning, middle and end of India’s victorious chase, smashing Chaminda Vaas for two sixes over cover to make the early mark, 

Before negotiating the threat of Muttiah Muralitharan in the middle overs. Dhoni took a liking to Upul Chandana, and brought up his century in 85 balls.

Mixing in smart running with telling blows, Dhoni experienced cramps in the final stages, though his scoring rate was unblemished.

His tenth six was the final blow in his assault, and India had chased down the target of 299 with 23 balls to spare.

The 183* is still the highest score by a wicketkeeper in a men’s one-day international and the first to shake his hand was opposing ‘keeper Kumar Sangakkara, who made an unbeaten 138* himself.
