Pallekele: Virat Kohli-led India defeated Sri Lanka by six wickets in the third ODI in Pallekele on Sunday to win the five-match series. Rohit Sharma, who remained not out on 124 runs along with MS Dhoni, who remained not out on 67, ensured Team India’s easy win.
Although the crowd trouble marred the proceedings of the match, Dhoni’s chill won over the internet yet again. While the former Indian skipper had it easy as he scored a fifty, his on-field nap, amidst the chaos at the Pallekele venue, once again highlighted why he is considered to be one of the coolest cricketers going around.

The rowdy Sri Lankan supporters started throwing bottles on the field of play when India needed just eight runs to win the game. The security personnel were called in to evict the unruly spectators. Dhoni, meanwhile, lied down for a nap, spoke with Rohit Sharma as if the two were relaxing and having a fun chat in some park.
Clearly bowled over by Dhoni’s coolness, the social media went berserk.
