MS Dhoni is known for being calm on the field and he has proved that several times, securing victories with his approach. Yesterday, against Sri Lanka, he took it a step further by taking a "power-nap" during the crowd trouble in Kandy against Sri Lanka before scoring the winning runs yet again.
Nothing is going well for the Sri Lankan cricket team as they lost the third ODI by six wickets which handed India an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five ODI series after having being whitewashed in the Test series. After the second ODI, the fans stopped the Sri Lankan players from getting onto the team bus and made their discontent with the performance vocal. With India needing just nine runs to seal the series, the home crowd, in Kandy, lost their cool and started throwing bottles onto the field of play. The match had to be stopped while the security officials brought the crowd under control.
The advantage for India in such a heated situation - having the coolest man in cricket on the field. While most players looked worried as the crowd grew aggressive, Dhoni decided he had enough time to take a power nap. Security forces were able to remove the troublemakers from the gallery and the game resumed. A recharged Dhoni came back and finished things off over the next seven balls.
The fourth ODI of the series will be played on August 31 in Colombo.
