Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virat Kohli lifted the tri-series trophy together after India snatched a win over Sri Lanka in the final. Early in the series, Dhoni injured himself and missed a few games. As a result, Kohli led the team in those matches and scored a hundred as well in the victory over the West Indies.

Dhoni once again lived upto the ‘Captain Cool’ tag as he held his nerve to almost singlehandedly guide India to the title triumph with a narrow one-wicket win over Sri Lanka in a thrilling final of the the Tri-nation ODI series here.

Needing 15 from the last over in their chase of 202, Dhoni smashed Shaminda Eranga for two sixes and a boundary in just four balls to finish off the game in style at the Queen’s Park Oval.

After bowling out Sri Lanka for 201, India rode on Dhoni and Rohit Sharma‘s half century to chase down the target with two balls to spare at the Queen’s Park Oval.

The result also meant that the Champions Trophy winners’ recent run of success in the 50-over format continued.

As the captain slammed Eranga over extra cover for the winning shot, the Indian crowd erupted in joy and the jubilant players ran down the pitch to flank the man of the moment, who remained unbeaten on 45 off 52 balls.
