Super Performer Of The Day

Mahendra Singh Dhoni

India's captain cool came under heavy criticism after his side surrendered quite meekly in the first two matches against Bangladesh. In the third and final ODI yesterday, though, Mahendra Singh Dhoni sort of took things into his own hands after coming in to bat at number four in the 20th over following the departure of Virat Kohli. The number four position, where Dhoni batted only 20 times in his 265-match career so far, has been his best yielding him an average of 68, which is a staggering 16 better than his career average. The 33-year-old skipper got enough time to get himself in and then unleashed a wide range of strokes on way to crafting a 77-ball 69, including six fours and a six. It wasn't the best of Dhoni's knocks, but it did ensure India 317 runs on the board, their best in this series by a long way.
