Reason Behind Dhoni Sleeps On-field During Last India vs Sri Lanka Match

Indian cricket team is on a winning streak. The tourists who have whitewashed Sri Lanka in three-Test series produced a scintillating all-round display to crush Sri Lanka by 6 wickets in the third ODI at the Pallekele International Stadium on Sunday. With this stunning win, India has now taken an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series.
MS Dhoni is known as Captain Cool for a reason, and not that the 36-year-old needs to prove it, but then what else would you call a power nap in the middle of the field as upset Sri Lankan fans threw bottles ? This rather bizarre incident happened during the third One-Day International between India and Sri Lanka at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, Balagolla, in Kandy.
Sensing another meek surrender from the home team, the crowd went berserk as they started throwing water bottles at the end of the 44th over, forcing a 35-minute stoppage. After that particular stand was emptied, the Indian batsmen returned to the ground to score the required eight runs for victory.
India was cruising through towards a comfortable series-win when the crowds misdemeanour led to a stoppage of play for nearly half an hour. Bottles were thrown on the field by angry Sri Lankan fans, who were seemingly incensed seeing yet another the lackluster performance by the home team. Making maximum use of this time, Dhoni decided to recharge himself by taking a short nap on the field. Photos and videos of Dhoni napping mid-field is now possibly making more news than the match win itself many twitter user trolled Sri Lanka fans, and quite obviously has tickled the funnybone of our ever-creative Netizens.
