Dhoni made an unexpected decision at the 2015 World Cup. My mission was to come down and play number four. Kohli and Dhawan added 129 runs for the second wicket before India lost Rohit Sharma. When Raina reached the crease, India were 163 for three. Ajinkya Rahane had to go down in the usual number four. However, Dhoni had commissioned Raina to counter Pakistan’s spin attack.

I never questioned his decision. I was eating a sandwich in the dressing room during the match against Pakistan. Shortly after 20 overs, Dhoni told me to sing. It was a time when Virat was batting well. “Soon after, Dhawan was run out. I hit number four and played 70 and 80,” Raina said.

Raina hit five fours and three sixes. India won the toss and elected to bat first. India won the toss and elected to bat. India won by 76 runs

After the match, I asked Dhoni why he made such a change. I thought you would play better against leg-spinners. “You could have dealt with the spin rate at that time in Pakistan,” Dhoni said. Raina added that he appreciated my batting.

This time, we thought, the Indian team is on the alert
