Ganguly hails Dhoni’s knock at Adelaide
Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly termed the half-century of MS Dhoni at Adelaide Oval as a big positive for India.
India are back into the three-match ODI series with a comfortable win by six wickets in Adelaide Oval and leveled the series 1-1 with one match to go at Melbourne Cricket Ground.
It was another day of batting display at Adelaide Oval as almost 600 runs scored in the match. Australia batted first and scored 298 runs and set a target of 299 for India to level the series.
After a decent contribution from openers Indian skipper Virat Kohli and former skipper, MS Dhoni anchored the chase for India. Virat Kohli scored his 39th ODI century and top scored the batting chart for India. But he was unable to stay till the end.
His partner MS Dhoni stayed till the end and ensured the win for India with a good fifty. Even though Kohli scored a ton, the main topic of the game is the fifty from MS Dhoni as he was amongst some purple patches of his career with the bat in recent times.
MS Dhoni is among the praises of people following his good comeback knock at Adelaide Oval. Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly also appreciated the knock of MS Dhoni and termed it as a big positive for India ahead of their upcoming fixtures.
“Two things are to be seen from this innings. When he (Dhoni) was playing with Virat, he played differently and when he was out, he changed his game. When Kohli plays, he takes the pressure off the other player but once he got out, he took the game forward,” Ganguly was quoted on a TV show.
“Dhoni played a great inning after a long time. It is a big positive for India that he played like that and this will give him confidence. The team management will also get confidence from this that they were not wrong to back him,” the former captain added.
