According to information company PTI, Stokes in his soon-to-be-printed guide revealed that the England dressing room felt that Dhoni tried to take it deep in order that the run-fee remained intact. Dhoni remained unbeaten on 42 off 31 balls however many of the runs got here within the final over when the match as a contest was over.
“There is a theory in our camp that Dhoni’s way of playing has always been the same. Even if India can’t win the game, he takes it right to the end to try to make sure that India’s run rate stays relatively healthy,” Stokes wrote.
“His big thing has always been to give himself a chance of winning by being at the crease for the final over, but he generally likes to stick around to get as close to a target as possible even in a losing cause.”
