It won't be wrong to say that the former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is cooler than ice. His calm and compose attitude is what that made him people's captain cool when he was the skipper.

During the third ODI match between India and Sri Lanka, Dhoni was seen taking a nap on the field at a time when the crowd was hurling bottles.

The men-in-blue were inching towards the victory when an untoward incident occurred. The game was stopped for a while due to the crowd trouble and Dhoni took advantage of the stopped play to take a power nap.

India needed eight runs to win and angry Sri Lankan fans began to throw bottles on the field. The game resumes almost after half an hour.

With an impressive win in the third ODI, India has already sealed the series by 3-0 while two matches are yet to be played.

Indian opener Rohit Sharma (124*) smashed a brilliant century, while Dhoni (67*) scored a half-century as India registered a six-wicket victory at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium on 27 August.

Earlier in the match, Jasprit Bumrah displayed exceptional bowling performance as India restricted Sri Lanka to 217-9.

Bumrah was awarded man of the match for his brilliant bowling performance as he recorded 5-27, which is his best figures in an ODI.
