Relieved from captaincy duties, there is still a good amount of juice left in MS Dhoni’s veins as an aggressive batsman whose hustle and bustle in the build-up to essaying flamboyant sleek flow of runs is the complete highlight of his batting technique with beautiful boundaries making it a picturesque effect as any cricket devotee would pay to watch him play.
At one end, Indian batsmen in the ongoing Test series against Australia struggled to get going quite recently but at the other end of the spectrum, watching MS Dhoni gaining the substantial rhythm on a strong tune is an absolute peach of a visual treat for the fans.
MS Dhoni saved Jharkhand team as he struck a valiant 129 runs off 107 balls that piloted the team beat Chhatisgarh by 78 runs in Group D Vijay Hazare Trophy, Kolkata. Surprisingly, this is MS Dhoni’s first List A century since taking charge in Jharkhand cricket team.
Chhatisgarh’s immense pressure on Jharkhand left the team in limbo leaving them on the backfoot and were in a bit of predicament on 57/6. Who would have thought that this team could escalate the flow of runs? When MS Dhoni arrived there were some big expectations.
Jharkhand might have received a savage blow at the top but ensured to give it back on a fine tune, courtesy MS Dhoni and Shahbaz Nadeem, the duo restored the innings back on track for their valuable 151-run stand that steered the team reach 243/9 in their quota of overs.
On the contrary, Chhatisgarh batsmen have failed to execute the homework properly when the Jharkhand bowlers ripped through their batting defences, courtesy, Varun Aaron and Shahbaz Nadeem picked up three apiece respectively as Chattisgarh was bundled out for 165 runs losing to Jharkhand by 78 runs.
Well, witnessing the innings at the best scene, one could sense positives that the “helicopter shot” man will be very much keen to play an integral role with respect to unfamiliar climes for the upcoming Champions Trophy in England and Wales scheduled from June 5-28.
