India is all set for the ODI series against England and everyone is looking forward to Yuvraj and Dhoni playing together in free flow just like the good old days. Lets have a look at some of their best innings together.
1. 158 vs Zimbabwe in 2005Team India was chasing a target of 250 and they were 5 down for 91 when Dhoni came to bat. India was on the verge of a huge defeat but these two had something else in mind. Yuvraj batted brilliantly and scored 120 off 124 balls. Dhoni gave him full support and scored an unbeaten 67 off 63 balls.
2. 102 vs Australia in 2013Australia set a massive target of 202 for India in the T20 game at Rajkot. Both Yuvraj and Dhoni batted brilliantly and score 102 runs in just 51 balls and saw India home. Yuvraj scored 77 off 35 balls and Dhoni scored a 24 ball 21.
3. 148 vs Australia in 2009Team India was down at 53-3 when Sachin left the ground. The hopes of a victory were slim but these two once again came to India's rescue and scored 148 runs with Yuvraj scoring 78 and Dhoni 71.
4. 102 vs Pakistan in 2006Dhoni had a great series in his first tour to Pakistan. India and Pakistan were up against each other in the 3rd ODI after winning one match each. India was chasing a target of 289 and were down to 190 for 5 at the end of 35 overs. It was then Dhoni came to bat and these two won the match for the country.
There are many other innings where these two together helped India win matches. Let's hope that we will get to see many more great performances by these two in the upcoming series against England and matches after that.
