5 MS Dhoni Master Strokes V/s South Africa
1. Dhawan Playing In Team India
Shikhar dhwan was criticized by Indian fans when he failed badly on Australian tour but MS Dhoni showed faith & trust in him & now he is leading run scorer in World Cup 2015 with 210 runs.
2. Giving Mohit Sharma The Opportunity Which Proved Fatal As He Picked The Critical Wickets Of Amla And Faf du Plessis Plus Initiated A Run Out
MS Dhoni was also criticized for playing his CSK team mate Mohit Sharma in Indian cricket team but Mohit Sharma proved his worth in today’s match against South Africa. He took 2 crucial wickets Hashim Amla & Faf Du Plesis. He was also involved in crucial run out of Ab de Villiers.
3. Sending Rahane Rather Than Sending Raina At A Crucial Time.
Today, MS Dhoni sent Rahane ahead of Raina even though Raina was game changer against Pakistan. But Dhoni’s move of sending Rahane ahead of Raina paid off and Rahane scored 79 of 60 balls only.
4. Field Placement
Today team India saved 20-30 Runs by their brilliant fielding. Their fielding also helped to take two crucial wickers of Ab de Villiers & David Miller. Even one out of these if kept going, then can change the match in no time. These 2 are most dangerous batsman in world cricket and it’s almost impossible to bowl them out if they keep going. But brilliant field placement made them throw their wickets via run out.
5. Playing 5 Bowlers Which Had 2 Spinners
India won this match because of their world class bowling. 2 spinners Ashwin & Jadeja gave only 78 runs in 18.2 overs & took 4 wickets.
