Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli guided them to safer shores, but Kohli was quickly out by Tillakaratne Dilshan. MS Dhoni came out to bat, Yuvraj Singh was in superlative form and the demotion was hard to explain.

Dhoni played a match-winning hand of 91* runs and also hit the winning shot off Nuwan Kulasekara to bring glory home.

Recently, Sehwag and Sachin attended a chat show ‘What the Duck’ anchored by renowned comedian Vikram Sathaye. During the show, Sehwag revealed that Sachin suggested Dhoni’s promotion in the epic match. He said “So, that was also suggested by him and this was the first time he directly passed a message to MS, otherwise it always went through Lala (himself) and the result is in front of you.”

He also further added by saying,“So, finally in between MS Dhoni came in and at that time Virat Kohli and Gautam were batting. So, he told MS, if righty gets out, then go for righty and lefty gets out, go for lefty.

After saying this, he went to the bathroom and then back out. And then Virat Kohli got out and in place of him, MS Dhoni went for the batting, that’s why Yuvraj Singh didn’t play on number 4 despite being in good form” .
