MS Dhoni won hearts again after winning India the game by six wickets at the Adelaide Oval to help Men in blue level the series at 1-1. Dhoni’s 55 off 54 balls and the match-winning six proved to do it for the blues as Dhoni remained unbeaten. The 37-year-old received a standing ovation from the crowd. The World Cup-winning captain who may have played his last game at the venue obliged and waved back at the fans and did a few hand patting before heading into the dressing room.
Here is the video of MS Dhoni thanking the crowd for all its support:

“There is no doubt that he should be a part of this team. Tonight was MS classic. He calculates the game so well. He takes the game till the end when only he knows what’s going on in his mind, and he backs himself to hit those big shots at the end,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation ceremony. Kohli could not take his team home this time but Dhoni and Dinesh Karthik (25 off 14) rose to the occasion with an unbeaten 57-run stand, helping India chase down a target of 299 with four balls to spare.
