Dhoni, who was batting with opener Rohit Sharma, took the opportunity to take a quick nap. With no signs of resuming the match coming from the organisers, Dhoni comforted himself with a nice break on the ground.
But, after the players left the field after the customary handshakes, security persons got the stadium emptied of spectators and the umpires then decided to resume the match.
Rohit (124 not out) and Dhoni (67 not out) made short shrift of the required eight runs. India chased down Lanka's target of 218 runs to take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series.
