This is what desperate MS Dhoni doing to get back in form

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.

India take on the West Indies in the fourth ODI on Monday after the visitors levelled the five-match series 1-1 with a 43-run morale boosting win in Pune on Saturday.




Opener Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayadu, who is looking to consolidate the number four spot, young K L Rahul, Manish Pandey and spin all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja also practised during the session.




Before padding up, Jadeja also bowled to his teammates.




Maharashtra player Kedar Jadhav, who has recovered from a hamstring injury and is likely to feature in tomorrow’s match, also honed his skills.

The West Indies did not have any practice session on Sunday.
