Dhoni shines for IndiaINDORE, India (AP):Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni produced a courageous knock under pressure and Axar Patel came up with some timely strikes as India completed a gritty 22-run victory over South Africa in the second one-day international yesterday.Dhoni gave a superb exhibition of batting in the company of lower-order batsmen, with his unbeaten 92 helping India to level the five-game series 1-1. Left-arm spinner Patel extracted enough turn from the pitch to grab 3-39 as India bowled out South Africa for 225 in 43.4 overs in reply to the hosts’ 247-9.Dhoni smashed four sixes and seven fours as India fought back after being reduced to 104-5 in the 24th over.”It was not an easy game as a lot of people wait with open swords and want you to make mistakes,” Dhoni said in reference to his below-par spell with the bat. “As a complete batting unit we didn’t perform well, but we bounced back well.”Pakistan takecontrolABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP):A double century by Shoaib Malik and his 248-run partnership for the fifth wicket with Asad Shafiq yesterday gave Pakistan the upper hand at the end of the second day of the first Test against England.
