Mahendra Singh Dhoni's unbeaten 78 runs off 79 balls helped India take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the five-match series. Towards the end, Dhoni's trademark big hitting towards the end helped the Indians go past the 250-run mark. India captain Virat Kohli said that MSD stepped up when the team needed him. "When we needed the runs, MS again finished the innings along with Kedar," he said. "Ajinkya batted well and Yuvi's 40-odd (39) were really important runs. MS at the end along with Kedar finished it really well. We thought 250 was a very competitive total," he added.
