Team India thrashed the West Indies once again in the 3rd ODI took place in Antigua by 93 and the show stopper was undoubtedly Mahendra Singh Dhoni. His stunning 78 off 79 balls scripted India’s victory and got him the Man of the Match award for the first time in the ongoing bilateral series. It was not the first time that MS Dhoni’s knock helped us to conquer a game by a huge margin. His class and cricket skills have led the Indian team to victory for numerous times. His work behind the wickets is next to impossible and the way he batted yesterday was simply phenomenal. He not only set 4 world records but also bamboozled Windies wicket-keeper Shai Hope and saved himself from being stumped.
MS Dhoni came into bat after India had lost three wickets within 100 runs. While he was batting on 30 off 53 balls, he went down the line to the ball delivered by Windies spinner Devendra Bishoo. The bowler saw Dhoni coming down the line and he bowled a wide delivery which was way out of the off stump. He tried to dismiss Dhoni by stumping but Dhoni’s cleverness outplayed the opponent’s strategy.
Within no time MS Dhoni realised it would be risky if he attempts to hit the ball and instead of moving ahead, he was back in the crease before Shai Hope could even grab the ball.

MS Dhoni’s this move was never seen before. He not only saved his wicket but also thrashed the plan of the opposing team to take him down.
He started to play very slow as by the end of 40 overs he had scored only 29 runs. After Ajinkya Rahane got dismissed for 72, Dhoni shifted his gear and ended up scoring 78 runs off 79 balls and helped the Indian team to put a total of 251 runs on the scoreboard.
