Cool, Composed MS Dhoni Stretches India Lead in ODI Series

Indian cricket team, led by Virat Kohli, will be here tomorrow for the second India Srilanka 2nd ODI Series 2017 tournament tomorrow, he will have to continue his winning campaign by raising the troubles of the Sri Lankan team, which has been struggling with consistent defeat.

Bhuvneshwar hit his maiden ODI fifty.

However, Dhoni (38) and Bhuvneshwar (53) took India there on and batted sensibly, not giving away any chance to the Lankan bowlers and slowly and steadily ticking along.

India won the first of a five-match One Day International series against Sri Lanka by nine wickets on Sunday (20 August) at the Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium in Dambulla.

It's the second-largest lottery jackpot in US history; the cash prize would be almost $444,000,000. A $448 million prize was claimed in June, and a $435 million jackpot was won in February.

Dananjaya turned on the heat with his googly as he picked three crucial wickets, including that of skipper Virat Kohli for four, in an over, to take some steam off the Indian chase. Dhoni may have been forced to farm strike had India lost another wicket, but letting a No.9 grab the bull by its horns in that situation could not have even easy, and yet that is exactly what Dhoni did because of trust in Bhuvneshwar's ability. "Bhuvi played brilliantly and Dhoni did what he does best, one of the calmest characters under pressure", Pothas said. They were sensible, collected runs in singles and later on played their shots as they inched closer to the target. India were storming to another victory. "The board has been hugely supportive of everything that I do and what the players do". You got to be ruthless in these games.

"So it's an opportunity for everyone in the team including MS to create good habits and sustain them over a period of time", the skipper made it amply clear how much he wishes to have an in-form Dhoni in the team.

These apart, India already covered all bases which will be head-to-head display in the game with their confidence post meter running in left-over. I just wanted to play him for the wrong one or the googlies, which he was bringing in to me. In the bowling department, Sri Lanka will rely on experienced pacer Lasith Malinga, who played his 200th ODI in the last match, to produce early breakthroughs.

"It is never good to lose, but as they say, it is how you lose". After a massacre-like bowling spell from Akila Dananjaya who took 6 wickets in his spell demolishing the Indian batting order, it was Dhoni who remained "cool as a cucumber' and took charge of the innings".
