Dhoni’s sad face motivated me to win the match: Raina recalls India’s win against Australia in the 2011 World Cup
Suresh Raina scored only 34 runs in the 2011 World Cup quarter-final against Australia. But the knock held significance since it came in an unbeaten 74-run stand with Yuvraj Singh. At the time when Raina was going out, Dhoni was returning to the pavilion. It’s then that Raina saw his sad face and it prompted the left-hander to win India the match from there on. He also got words of wisdom from Sachin Tendulkar.
