Virat Kohli scored second century of the series to steer India to 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 seal the host’s fate. Jadhav, however, failed to bat till the end as he was dismissed with the Men in Blue needing just 2 runs to complete a 5-0 sweep. That brought Dhoni in to the crease, a man with the reputation of finishing off matches with big hits.
Dhoni curbed his natural instincts to take a single on the very first ball. On reaching the non-striker’s end, the former Indian captain smiled at Kohli who acknowledged the gesture with the exact same expression. While they didn’t exchange any words, as it was clear that Dhoni wanted Kohli to hit the winning runs after having played a stellar knock.
