India were once again in danger of being restricted to a low total against the Windies, but MS Dhoni came to the rescue. In his first 45 deliveries, Dhoni batted with a strike rate of under 58 to steady the Indian innings. but once Mahi dropped anchor, there was no stopping the former India captain. MSD smashed 30 runs off his next 16 balls, as his 72nd ODI fifty powered India to 268/7. His knock came at a time when few cricket pundits including Sachin Tendulkar had criticized Dhoni for playing a slow knock vs Afghanistan. But MSD's unbeaten 56 surely silenced his critics yet again.
