  • 7 Times MS Dhoni Proved He Is The Coolest Cricketer Ever

Mahendra Singh Dhoni will be cynosure of all eyes as he gears up for his 300th ODI with a marauding India ready to tighten the noose around beleaguered Sri Lanka in the penultimate encounter of the five-match series here on Thursday.

While Sri Lankan player KC Sangakkara and MS Dhoni, both are now at 99 stumps, Dhoni also had an "unbeaten inning" record waiting for him to break with him standing at 72 alongside Shaun Pollock and Chaminda Vaas. After such incidents, Sri Lanka have much more to play for in the fourth ODI, pride included. Kapugedera had been nursing a stiff back before the third ODI, but had batted and fielded in that game.

Sri Lanka, who have already lost the series, will be led by Lasith Malinga in the fourth ODI. "Cricket has been and will always be my life, so it was particularly painful to see our own fans attack our own players".

India needed eight runs to win and angry Sri Lankan fans began to throw bottles on the field. I'm also really enjoying this challenge with the young team.

Malinga needs just one wicket to take his career ODI haul to 300, but he is not preoccupied with reaching the milestone. "People think we are not top of the table, but I feel we can change that".

After Sri Lanka's poor performance in Champions Trophy, Sports Minister Dayasiri Jayasekara said the team's poor fielding display throughout the tournament was due to substandard fitness and their "big bellies". "Earlier, cricketers were confident that they will be retained in the team, but now they don't know whether they will play the next match", he said, accusing the administration of allowing political interference. They will deliver. To the boys we say: believe in your ability and believe in the fans. We want to give our experience to them. "Then I feel they will do a better job for us over the next few years", he reasoned. In the second ODI, the game nearly looked to swerve away from the hands of men in blue after Akila Dhananjaya's six wicket haul.
