India is now a step closer to the world cup, thanks to their commendable performance. Now, since our men in blue have pushed West Indies out of the race, they just need two more points to enter the semi-finals. Captain Virat Kohli, after the match, addressed M.S. Dhoni's performance and complimented his experience stating that it does well for the team in most cases. He added that Dhoni plays a form of instinctive cricket, which not many players do. M.S.
