While the nail bitter last over finish ensured India’s survival in the series, what many don’t know is the fact that even without being captain, India’s former captain MS Dhoni played a crucial role in this match.

You see Kohli is a relatively new to captaining a side and till last night had hardly faced pressure situation as the captain of a team.

 

Dhoni, on the other hand, has over the years garnered the reputation of being ‘captain cool’, and many times won matches at the very last moment.

He is known for taking risks and clenching the victory from the opposition’s hands by putting his faith in the players whom other’s might not trust at that hour.



 

While we all know Dhoni to be famous for doing this, there was a hint of his “faith” last night when Captain Kohli showed similar trust in youngster Jaspreet Bumrah.

With Bumrah at the helm, Kohli set the task of setting the field to experienced Dhoni, whom according to News18, is Kohli’s “unofficial vice-captain”.

The faith seems to have paid off as not only did Bumrah deliver brilliantly, but the field set by Dhoni also played a crucial role in the last over.

The report by News18 had stated that shortly after MS Dhoni stepped down as the Indian team captain, new captain Virat Kohli had made him promise to be his “unofficial vice-captain” whenever the team needed one, and last night was just the proof that.
