Vaibhav Bhola, New delhi: After Virat Kohli, it’s MS Dhoni is readying to bash the English bowlers in forthcoming ODI and T20 series against England. Dhoni will be assisted by Yuvraj Singh in hammering England. No wonder Dhoni is planning to weild his power with a 1200 gram bat, while Yuvi is strengthening his muscles with rope exercise and gymming.
Dhoni has bought 4 special bats for the series against England. He is ready to rock the ground after 60 days of rest. It is not that the duo have a point to prove to England, but they have to prove to themselves that they are still there.
The series against England starts on January 15, but before that there will a training camp at Bangalore. Dhoni is likely to take part in few practice matches. It is during the camp and practice matches that Dhoni will be testing his new Spartan willows.
The series against England is crucial for Dhoni, as after this Dhoni’s warriors will head for the Champions Trophy. Dhoni’s performance in 2016 has not been great, he just made 278 runs in 13 matches at an average of 27.80. He is looking forward and practicing hard to improve on this in 2017.
Like Dhoni, recently-married Yuvi is sweating it out for the series. Sources say that his place in at least in the T20 team is certain. Known for his match finishing abilities, Yuvi is currently working on his fitness. His performance in the Ranji matches that he played was also good.
For India to brown wash England again, it is important that the two match finishers get in form. (News24Bureau)
