It was a vintage Dhoni on display against Bangladesh in the second warm-up game as he scored a brilliant hundred and helped India register a morale-boosting 95-run win at the Sophia Gardens before the World Cup opener.
On Tuesday, Dhoni, who came into bat when India were in a spot with 102/4, smashed a 78-ball 113, which contained seven sixes and helped his team post a gigantic 359/7. It was only poetic justice that he brought up his 100 with a six in the 49th over of the innings as skipper Kohli cheered on from the dressing room with teammates for company.
The 37-year-old also shared a crucial 164-run partnership with K.L. Rahul (108) and made sure that the Men in Blue did not suffer from yet another embarrassing batting collapse like they did against New Zealand.
