Cricket fraternity lauds MS Dhoni & Bhuvneshwar Kumar for a record partnership in the 2nd ODI

Posted On / /

Disciplined innings from former skipper MS Dhoni and pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar saw India defeating Sri Lanka by three wickets in a thrilling second ODI played at Pallekele on Thursday.

Chasing a revised target of 231 due to rain, India were cruising at 108 for no loss in the 16th over. But the match turned on its head in a space of six overs as the visitors lost seven wickets for just 22 runs. Sri Lankan all-rounder Akila Dananjaya created havoc in the Indian batting line-up as he scalped six wickets in his 10 overs.

But Dhoni (45 not out) and Bhuvneshwar (53 not out) forged a match-winning partnership of unbeaten 100 runs to seal the deal for India. This was India’s highest eighth wicket partnership in ODI’s.

Also, cricket fraternity praised Dhoni and Bhuvi for their fighting innings and taking India to a win from an unlikely looking situation.
