Why did Dhoni change his batting order in the WC 2011 final? Yuvraj Singh told the full story

Yuvraj Singh on MS Dhoni: You must remember that moment of the final match of World Cup 2011 when Team India lost their third wicket for 114 runs while chasing a target of 275 runs. Virat Kohli was returning to the pavilion after getting out for 35 and from the other side instead of Yuvraj Singh, captain MS Dhoni himself was moving towards the pitch with the bat.

such was the thrill of the final match
In the final match of World Cup 2011, Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bat first. Sri Lanka set India a target of 275, thanks to Mahela Jayawardene’s century and small innings from Dilshan and Sangakkara. In reply, India lost the wickets of Sehwag and Sachin on the total of 31 runs. From here an 83-run partnership between Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli and then a 109-run partnership between Gambhir and Dhoni took India closer to victory. In the final, Dhoni and Yuvraj made an unbeaten partnership of 54 runs to win this match for India.
