In the beginning, Dhoni congratulated his younger self for his impressive 183 versus Sri Lanka in only his second year in international cricket, i.e. in 2005. Chasing a mammoth 299, courtesy Kumar Sangakkara's 138, India were 7-1 in 0.5 overs when Dhoni walked out to bat at No. 3.

He was well-supported by skipper Rahul Dravid, Yuvraj Singh and Venugopal Rao as India closed the run-chase with 6 wickets and 23 balls to spare.
