XtraTime Web Desk: Former India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is under serious pressure as he is not in form for a long period of time with the bat. The selectors didn’t pick him for the T20I series against Windies and Australia as well, last night during the 3rd ODI in Pune he failed to deliver again as he got out on just 7 runs and the hosts lost the game as well. To deliver in the next game against Windies, MS Dhoni today batted at the nets of Cricket Club of India (CCI) for almost 45 minutes during the optional training session.
Dhoni, who has of late, struggled to get big scores in ODIs, was also seen having a brief chat with the team’s assistant coach Sanjay Bangar.
