Did India Miss a Trick by Saving MS Dhoni for Too Late?

India are 5/3 in the World Cup semi-finals at Manchester chasing 240 for a win and the wicket-keeper batsman walks out to the middle. The first 20 balls are all dots.

The ball is moving around, the Kiwis bowlers have their tails up but the wicket-keeper batsman is unfazed. He hits a four and a couple soon after the 20 dots and then edges one to point where Jimmy Neesham pulls off the catch of the tournament.

But wait, that wasn’t MS Dhoni at no 5 for India. It was Dinesh Karthik. In walks Hardik Pandya next and Rishabh Pant, the occupant at no 4, and Hardik put on a crucial 47-run stand.

Kane Williamson is now looking to tempt Pant into a mistake. He has Mitchell Santner turning the ball into Pant and inviting him to go over deep mid-wicket. Pant resists the urge initially but you can see he is fidgety.
