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.
I agree with you... No doubt Mushfique is the winner and he tried his best. But he couldve just smacked that ball down and not do anything, wait for the next couple of deliveries and then go for 3rd man or something... He still had the balls left that he couldve scored that boundary without slog hitting that ball. But I think he was cramping and lost his plan. He just didnt finish it off as a 'top level professional' would do it...
Great innings by the man but it was of no use, it didnt finish and was still short.
