India steamrolled Sri Lanka in the Twenty20 international series, completing a whitewash over the visitors by beating them in the third and final T20I five wickets at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday night. Following India's comprehensive win, MS Dhoni and other Indian players brought Christmas cheer for their fans by donning Santa caps. Dhoni was especially in a festive mood and his special Santa look had fans on Twitter in meltdown. The former India captain was seen sporting a very different Santa cap from his teammates and his hilarious expressions won the fans over.

Some fans even posted videos of Dhoni bobbing his head around.

Dhoni was once again the man to hit the winning shot as India were given a scare by the Sri Lankans in Mumbai.

The former India captain, who has been promoted up the order in previous matches, gave the youngsters in the team a chance by coming to bat 4 down with India chasing a modest 136 for a win.

However, despite some lusty blows from Manish Pandey (32) and Shreyas Iyer (30), India found themselves needing 28 off 23 balls when Dhoni came into bat.

With the pitch taking some bounce and shot-making a little difficult, Sri Lanka were gunning for the most unlikeliest of wins.

However, the India gained the upper hand and guaranteed the win when Dinesh Karthik smashed Nuwan Pradeep for a six on the final ball of the 19th over to leave the hosts needing just three runs from the last over. 

Dhoni took a double on the first ball to level the scores and as he did in the final of the 2011 World Cup against the same opposition and on the same ground, the wicket-keeper batsman hit the winning runs to get India across the line.
