Could have stayed there and attempted 4's. Had you failed, you could have gone for a 6 in 5th or 6th ball!

This is is the area where Dhoni excels and is a match-winner.
It was a length ball, it was there to be hit. There would be only four more balls left and he had Nazmul on the other end so he could exactly wait and try and take singles and also since it was not a powerplay over, fours would not have been easy to hit. Dhoni always goes after length balls so not sure why bring him into this.
