MS Dhoni played a match-winning knock in the first match of the ongoing ODI series between India and Australia. The former Indian captain batted in his trademark ‘cool and calm’ style and rescued India from a difficult position. He absorbed all the pressure from one end and mentored Hardik Pandya brilliantly in the middle.

Dhoni and Hardik Pandya formed a match winning partnership of 118 runs for the sixth wicket and helped India put a good total on the board.
India’s next match against Australia is at Eden Gardens (Kolkata). On Monday, MS Dhoni caught up on some sleep at the Chennai airport while Hardik Pandya, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul and the rest of the Indian team appeared relaxed.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) uploaded a picture of Indian cricket team waiting for their flight at the Chennai airport. While all other cricketers were chatting and having fun, MS Dhoni was seen taking a power nap. BCCI’s tweet became an instant hit and Indian fans praised MS Dhoni for his simplicity.
