India whitewashed Sri Lanka 3-0 in the test series and the ODI series is now underway. Most people may remember the 3rd ODI as the match where India wrapped up the series even though 2 games are left, while some may remember this game for the Pallekele crowd going wild and hurling bottles onto the ground.
However, for those who watched the game carefully, you will remember the 3rd ODI for MS Dhoni who coolly decided to fall asleep in the middle of the pitch. While there was chaos all over the ground as security tried to evacuate the violent crowd, Dhoni lay down and fell asleep.
To be honest, there wasn’t much else that could be done, as the players just had to wait for a while until the crowd was evacuated and cricket could continue peacefully. The former Indian captain decided to catch up on some sleep while the chaos took place.
How many others could have done this? How many sportsmen around the world have the ability to take a nap while an entire stadium is wrecking havoc. This incident just depicts MSD as the player he has always been – calm, cool and composed even in the toughest of situations.
As this incident happened, newspapers, social networks and all other platforms went wild, covering the ‘MS Dhoni Sleeping’ incident. What did MS Dhoni do after his nap?
He woke up, and calmly hit the winning runs for India, as he has done so many times in his illustrious career so far. Dhoni was out there when India won the 2nd ODI, and he was there on 67* as India wrapped up the series as well. Where are those people who say MS is past his prime?
