This has to be the moment of the match when MS Dhoni was playing looking to bail India out of a crunch situation he played the ball onto his stumps, the ball hit the stumps but the bails did not come off. That has to be one of the most game changing moments in cricketing history. This after India won the toss and put Sri Lanka into bat after thrashing them in their first One Day International. India reduced the hosts to 237, as they were all out. Jasprit Bumrah was the pick of the bowlers picking up 4 wickets. For the Sri Lankans Siriwardena was the top scorer, he scored 58.
But when India started batting, the match was reduced to 47 overs due to a little bit of rain. Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma got India off to a rollicking start, they brought up their 100-run partnership and India looked good to win the match comprehensively. That is just when Akila Dananjaya was brought into the attack and he did something that left India in disbelief. He picked up 6 wickets and India was reduced from 108 for 1 to 131 for 7.
That is when Bhuvneshwar Kumar joined Mahendra Singh Dhoni and they steadied the ship. They played cautiously and slowly but steadily brought up a 50-run partnership and India were looking good to win it.

But a moment in the match that caught our eye is when MS Dhoni played a ball of Fernando onto his stumps, there was a clear contact with the stumps, but the bails were not dislodged, surprisingly. MSD, then, with the permission of the umpire picked up the ball and gave it to the bowler who was dejected obviously.
