45* vs Sri Lanka at Pallekele – second ODI during the tour of Sri Lanka 2017
Chasing down the 231-run target in 47 overs, India was in deep trouble as the visiting side was struggling on 131/7 in the 22nd over. Though the Indian openers provided a great start with the 109 runs partnership, it faced a big collapse at later and put the visiting side into deep trouble. From that situation, MS Dhoni saved the Indian cricket team by a brilliant unbroken 100-run partnership for the eighth wicket along with the lower-order batsman Bhuvneshwar Kumar. While Kumar played an unbeaten knock of 53 runs (80 balls), cool and calm Dhoni played the important guidance role with 45 runs off 68 balls (only four).
