When was the last time you caught yourself smiling when Dhoni and Yuvraj were on the pitch? ODI WC 2011? Yes, that’s right. It was totally nostalgic when fans watched them together playing again. This is the best comeback that can ever happen in a partnership between two batsmen. All the cricket fanatics, including me, are so emotional after watching them together. It was all Virat before this match, but today’s match really made us smile and brought tears in our eyes. Yuvraj and Dhoni not only made a record partnership but also won our hearts.
Yuvraj scored his career-best 150 and MS Dhoni also followed him by scoring a century (134), these two helped India to score 381 for 6 at the Barabati Stadium, Cuttack (January 19). Yuvraj made his half century in 56 balls while Dhoni took 67, the duo picked up the speed in the middle phase of the innings. Yuvi’s last ODI century came against West Indies at the 2011 World Cup while Dhoni’s was in 2013 against Australia in Mohali.
The partnership reminded us of their innings in ODI WC at the Wankhede in 2011 that helped India to win the ODI World Cup. Yuvraj Singh and Mahendra Singh Dhoni are probably the best batting pair that India can ever produce. We just love this deadly duo.
See how twitter reacted on this emotional comeback.
