India Vs Bangladesh: Dhoni hits a century to guide India to a win

Tri Series: India Vs Bangladesh
Mahendra Singh Dhoni scored a dazzling century against Bangladesh in the Tri Series ODI match being played at the Sher-e-Bangla stadium in Bangladesh. After a defeat against Srilanka in the last match, India had to prove themselves with a win against the weaker opposition of Bangladesh. But after Bangladesh posted a commanding total of 296 with Tamim Iqbal (60), Imrul Kayes (70) & Mahmudullah (60) being the top scorers, India lost Gautam Gambhir (18), Virender Sehwag (13) & Yuvraj Singh (1) very early into the innings.
It was MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli who came to the rescue and saved India from a humiliating defeat against Bangladesh. Virat Kohli scored a brilliant 91 (102) balls alongwith MS Dhoni scoring a dazzling 101 not out (107 balls). Suresh Raina provided a good support to Dhoni in the end by scoring 51 (43 balls). Dhoni was named Man of the match.

Srilanka is at the top of the points table currently with two wins and India being placed at the second spot followed by Bangladesh. Next match is scheduled on 8th January 2010 when Bangladesh take on Srilanka.
