Manish Pandey combined with <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/ms-dhoni" target="_blank">MS Dhoni</a> to register a 68-run unbeaten stand off just 33 balls. That laid the foundation for India's 93-run win over Sri Lanka in the first T20 at Cuttack. Dhoni started off cautiously before ending with a 22-ball 39 not out. <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/rohit-sharma" target="_blank">Rohit Sharma</a> indicated that fans might get to see Dhoni bat more often at No. 4 in T20s. <p></p> <p></p> Great finish to our innings by MS and Pandey. Pandey hasn t had much game time in the middle, so to come out and bat like that is good. And MSD, he s just class. No. 4 really paid off. He s played so many games for us, won so many games for us and moving forward, we feel making him bat at No. 4 is ideal. That allows Manish and Dinesh [Karthik] to finish games off, Rohit told after India's win before adding that the team wants Dhoni to play more freely now. For a long period of time, MS has been finishing games off, but we want him to bat freely now, without that pressure. <p></p> <p></p>[link-to-post url="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/ms-dhoni-surpasses-ab-de-villiers-to-register-most-t20is-dismissals-671754"][/link-to-post] <p></p> <p></p>During the match, Dhoni also went past AB de Villiers to register most dismissals in T20 history. AB has 72 dismissals in this format, Dhoni with his tally of 4 in the match has 74 now. India will play their next T20I against Sri Lanka at Holkar Stadium, Indore on Friday.
