Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni played key roles in India's 5-0 ODI series win vs Sri Lanka.

Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni played key roles in India’s 5-0 ODI series win vs Sri Lanka.

Virat Kohli scored his second century of the series to steer India home to a six-wicket win in the fifth and final ODI against Sri Lanka on Sunday. The Indian captain and Kedar Jadhav stitched together a 108-run stand for the fourth wicket to put the hosts on the mat. Jadhav, however, failed to bat till the end as he was dismissed with the Men in Blue needing just two runs to complete a 5-0 sweep. That brought MS Dhoni to the crease, a man with the reputation of finishing off matches with big hits. Interestingly, Dhoni curbed his natural instincts to take a single on the very first ball. On reaching the non-striker’s end, the former India captain smiled at Kohli who acknowledged the gesture with the exact same expression. While the duo didn’t exchange any words, it was amply clear that Dhoni wanted Kohli to hit the winning runs after having played a stellar knock. Kohli didn’t opt for anything fancy, striking the ball straight down the ground to seal the win.
