‘Can Bat Wherever Team Needs Me To’: Man of the Series Dhoni

Dhol-tasha’ troupe finds its way to Adelaide cheers on Indian cricket team india vs australia

Yuzvendra Chahal has turned in the best figures for any bowler in a One Day International in Australia as India took the upper hand in the deciding third ODI at the MCG.

Dhoni and Virat Kohli (46) were both able to capitalise on Australia's poor fielding and questionable use of the Decision Review System (DRS).

Srikkanth backs Dhoni: Former Indian opening batsman wants the selectors to pick MS Dhoni in India's World Cup team. We are pretty happy with the batting combination that we had in Adelaide.

Virat Kohli has lashed out at critics of MS Dhoni after India wrapped up the ODI series win in Australia.

"Dhoni batted at No.4 in 2016 for a while". To take six wickets at the MCG is no small feat for a spinner, and I'm really happy for him. Because that allows him to do a bit of both. That's the game-changer, if he didn't get us wickets in the middle overs we would have been chasing 260-270. We felt that number five was the ideal position for him.

Their Therapaws programme promotes the positive therapeutic impact that animals can have through visits to residential homes. The Duchess of Sussex just further cemented her status as a global style muse on her first solo engagement of 2019.

In two matches, Dhoni has scored 106 runs at an average of 106 and a strike rate of 70.66. There will be three or four teams that can do it and it is how you start. So between four and five, it was a call to take today because Kedar is playing his first game on tour. So we made a decision to send Dhoni at four. "Few games against New Zealand and few more back home to strengthen the areas that we need to work on as a team", Kohli added. "The No.4 position, again, has been a sort of an area which we want solidified", he said. But as long as you are doing well as a batting unit, it keeps you going as a team. Rightfully, he pouched the Man-of-the-Match award, as Dhoni claimed the series prize.

Chahal then struck twice in his first over to remove the in-form Marsh and Khawaja, who had combined for a 73-run partnership. "Especially when you have not been playing so much worldwide cricket", said the India captain at the post-match press conference.

Rayudu was backed for the position by Kohli during the home series against West Indies previous year.

"He is one of the most intelligent cricketers and he is not someone who is not aware about what needs to be done".

'We have the team that can go the distance and not for one minute will I not be thinking in that fashion.
