Dashing Dhoni hits Aussies' hopes for six
Monday 13 February 2012
A superb innings from captain M S Dhoni led India to a thrilling four-wicket victory over Australia in the fourth match of the triangular ODI series at Adelaide Oval yesterday.
Needing 13 off the last over – and 12 off the final four balls – Dhoni (44 not out) belted a six high over long-on before a Clint McKay no-ball allowed the Indian captain a second life after he was caught on the boundary.
India ran two from the no-ball and Dhoni then scored three from the next ball to give his side only their second win in all formats over Australia this winter. Gautam Gambhir's 92 had put India on course for victory, McKay taking 3 for 53. Earlier, the debutant Peter Forrest (66) and veteran David Hussey (72) had guided Australia to 269 for 8.
