MS Dhoni will be rested for last two One-day Internationals of the five-match series against Australia, Team India batting coach Sanjay Bangar said.
“MS Dhoni will not be playing the last two ODIs of the ongoing five-match series against Australia. He is going to take rest after this,” Bangar said at the press conference after India’s defeat in the third ODI on Friday. Virat Kohli scored his 41st ODI hundred but that wasn’t enough to prevent India from losing the third ODI against Australia by 32 runs in Ranchi on Friday.
There have been speculations that the former India skipper might decide to hang his boots after the World Cup which will be hosted by England and Wales, starting May 30.
If that happens, the ODI against Australia was the last chance for Ranchi crowd to see the city’s favourite son in action for India.
