Watch: Dhoni's aggressive batting stint at nets will instill fear in Kiwi bowlers
‘Mahi maar raha hai. Mahi maar raha hai’ – A phrase that has graced the movie theatres over the past month thanks to the successful running of Sushant Singh Rajput starrer biopic based on the life of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. And now the man himself, back in the India blues is determined to give a demonstration of the particular quote used in the movie, M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story.
After scoring a gritty knock of 21 runs from 24 balls in the first ODI against New Zealand which included one four and a six, Mahendra Singh Dhoni was back in the nets in New Delhi and guess what he was doing. Plundering bowlers at will. In a video posted on Indian Cricket Team’s Facebook page, the most successful Indian captain is seen not only blasting the local net bowler but also an Indian spinner.
Given the batting depth of the Men in Blue, Dhoni in all probabilities will again promote himself up the order and come to bat at no. 5. So a powerful batting performance from Captain Cool may be just round the corner.
