4. 44* vs Australia, February 12 2012
One of the better innings Dhoni has played down under. It is also one of the innings that further substantiates his credentials as one of the best finishers in world cricket. Batting first Australia scored 269 off their allotted 50 overs. India set the chase well with Gambhir coming good at the top.But when Gambhir too fell, India needed someone to finish the innings. Raina and Dhoni were at the crease. Just like playing for CSK they went about the target at ease. It was not easy for Dhoni, he had to keep the scoreboard ticking and the boundaries were very hard to come by. But thankfully he stayed till the end and steered India to a scintillating victory. If you are looking for proofs for Dhoni as a finisher, this is the one you should go back and watch.
