India vs Australia 1st ODI: Dhoni's instructions to spinners change the game
When Glenn Maxwell blazed 33 off 13 balls it seemed like Australia would run away with 1st ODI. The required rate, which had inched towards 11 came down to 9. Dhoni understood what he required from the bowlers . He instructed Chahal, "Woh maarne wala dalna, andar ya baahar koi bhi (Bowl the one that he tries to hit, turning in or away, either is fine)". Or the more specific "Woh ghoomane waalaaa (the one that turns)" were some of the samples that Dhoni kept dictating to the two young spinners after every ball. Meanwhile India defeated Australia by 26 runs.
