It is very common that Indian limited-over skipper MS Dhoni finishes with a boundary to win a match for India. On Wednesday night, Dhoni brought another match for India but in a different style.

It was the crucial match between India and Bangladesh at the Super 10 stage (Group 1) in WT20 2016 at Bengaluru. Bangladesh decided to bowl first after winning the toss and restricted India at 146/7 in 20 overs.

In reply, Bangladesh almost reached that target. In the last over, Bangladesh required 11 runs to win that match and 4 wickets in hands out of which Bangladesh already managed 9 runs from first 3 balls. Meanwhile, Bangladesh needed only 2 runs in 3 balls and they had still 4 wickets in hands.

Hardik Pandya was the bowler in the last over for India who bowled that remarkable over. After conceding 9 runs in the first three balls, he made a terrific comeback as Bangladesh lost 2 wickets in the next 2 balls. For that reason, the equation got to change as Bangladesh needed 2 runs in the last ball while 2 wickets still in their hands.

Before the final ball was bowled, Dhoni removed his right-hand wicket-keeping glove to make easy for throwing. Pandya bowled a short outside the off to the Bangladesh batsman Shuvagata Hom which Hom failed to make connect and the ball went to the Dhoni’s hands. After missing to hit the ball, Hom immediately started to take a run along with the non-striker end batsman Mustafizur Rahman. At that time, Dhoni kept the presence of mind as he ran towards the striking end wicket instead of throwing the ball. Finally, Dhoni was successful to make hit the stumps before the reaching of Mustafizur into the crease. As a result, India won this thrilling match by just 1 runs.

It is true that the win came from a great team game but Dhoni’s contribution in the last ball was very rare and genius moment too.
