As Kohli Slams His 39th Ton, MSD Wins The 2nd ODI For India In The Most 'Vintage Dhoni' Way

A powerful performance by Australian hitter Shaun Marsh helped his team establish a sturdy total of 298 runs to give a tough battle to the Men in Blue in the second ODI at the Adelaide Oval today.

Compared to the first ODI, India's opening batsmen Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan gave their team a much required partnership. 

Although, not very impressive when it comes runs, the Dhawan-Sharma combo did provide a sense of stability to the batting order on which Virat Kohli later capitalised.

Despite the attacks put up by bowlers like Jason Behrendorff and Glenn Maxwell, Indian skipper Virat Kohli was not only able to control the pace of the game with his bat but was also able to score his 39th career ODI century, now just ten less than master blaster Sachin Tendulkar's record of 49 ODI tons.

However, the cream of the cake on India's victory was the evergreen former captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni whose versatility as a player enabled him to become whatever the team required him to be during the various stages of the match.

Take, for instance, the time when Kohli was setting the tone for the game, Dhoni was able to stay on the pitch in order to prevent the rapid falling of wickets and tried to give Kohli as many deliveries as he could, in order to get his ton and get them closer to the target.

And when Kohli was dismissed by Glenn Maxwell off Jhye Richardson, Dhoni, along with Dinesh Kartik, successfully took the responsibility of becoming the scorer and bringing in the win for his team in order to tie the three-game ODI series at one win apiece.

What's rather special about this game was the way in which Dhoni led the squad to victory. 

Just like nearly a decade ago, when a young MS Dhoni, with his long hair, would have ended the game by sending the ball flying into the spectators for a six, the present-day Dhoni did the same. 

Sending one over the long-on boundary on Behrendorff's first ball of the final over, Dhoni tied the game and also brought up his 69th half-century.

He then took a single on the next ball to win it all for India.

With a lot of people blaming the batsman for the first ODI loss and the notion of him not being a part and being replaced by the young and dynamic Rishabh Pant in the World Cup roster, Dhoni's game-winning play is a befitting response. 

This is classic Dhoni who doesn't react to hate and criticism with his mouth, but lets his bat do the talking.

Here's what India had to say:

Picture abhi baaki hai mere Dost !
Wonderful innings from Virat. Dhoni and Karthik finishing it in style. Will need more matches with 4-5-6 playing handy match-winning knocks. pic.twitter.com/YHdwJ0G59X

MS Dhoni, Whattey Selfish Player. Walks in at 160/3 at 30.4, when Team needed 139 off 116 balls.

Plays a run ball fifty, gets a not out to increase his average as well !!

Oh yes he guided the Team for a win, but that's not important. He played for his milestones. #Dhoni #MSD

Nothing feels better than Dhoni winning us matches by hitting sixes in the last overs. Nostalgia at peak. â¤ï¸ God bless you, Mahi. Aise hi khelte raho WC tak and then hang your boots with another trophy in the hands.
