Dhoni hits Bangladesh out of the park and India gets the much-needed boost just before entering the World Cup
KL Rahul and MS Dhoni hit century in their second warm-up game against Bangladesh. Rahul scored 108 and Thala made 113 which took India’s score to 359 in 50 overs. India had a bad start as they lost 4 wickets at the score of 102 in 22 overs but then Dhoni and Rahul forged a 164 run partnership for the 5th wicket in just 128 balls. When the people were thinking about reaching just 250, these two blasted the Bangladesh bowlers to earn a thumping victory by 95 runs.
KL solves the number 4 enigma code
India has been struggling to find their Number 4 batsman since 3 to 4 years. Vijay Shankar was tried at 4 who looked decent and was included in the World Cup squad. Now, when we thought KL Rahul has gone England as the back-up opener, he was given number 4 which he has almost cemented with a century in Warm up game.
Dhoni’s good form is a good sign for India
MS Dhoni thrashed Bangladesh by hitting 7 gigantic sixes. He took Spinners for the cleaners and looked good the moment he arrived at the crease. The former captain has been in great form since IPL and has been scoring runs with good strike rate. The Wicket-keeper batsman is known for taking his time initially and hitting big shots at the end of the innings but in this match, he played opposite to his nature and started hitting the shots from the first ball.
This win is a much-needed boost to Virat Kohli’s team ahead of the World Cup league matches. India lost their last warm-up match against New Zealand. Men in blue also lost a series against Australia at their home.
