New Delhi: India's limited-overs skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is back to winning ways after registering a 2-1 win over Sri Lanka in T20Is.

The win against the Dinesh Chandimal-led side, is Dhoni's second consecutive series win after hammering Australia 3-0 in a historic whitewash.

Not long ago, there were questions being raised about Dhoni's personal form, and also whether he was the right man to lead India after the team suffered a 1-4 defeat in the ODIs against the Aussies.

But ever since the T20Is began, Dhoni has rediscovered his mojo.

While the comebacks of Suresh Raina and Yuvraj Singh has strengthened the middle-order, Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah have given more bowling options to Dhoni.

Also the fact the the Asia Cup and the ICC World Twenty20 will be played on sub-continental tracks, Dhoni has some world-class spinners at his disposal and if the tracks assists spinners, there aren't many leaders who can capitalise on them better than Dhoni.

While he is yet to score a big knock for the team, with everything going his way, a swashbuckling innings shouldn't be too far away.
