‘Surprised how MSD middled almost every ball’: Jharkhand’s coach

MS Dhoni who has started training again in Ranchi took everyone by surprise as he was able to middle most of the deliveries.

Talking about the same, Jharkhand’s coach Rajiv Kumar said: “I will be honest. I thought there will be a bit of rustiness as Dhoni has not trained for quite some time. The last time we had spoken, he had said that he would start in January and here you go. He is a man of his words and it came as no surprise that he was out there training with the guys just like any other regular Jharkhand player.

But what surprised me most was how he middled almost every ball, be it in the pacer’s net or the spinner’s net. He even took throwdowns just like a player going through the batting drills does,” News18 cited agencies as quoting the Jharkhand coach.

“I haven’t had any talks with him with regards to the national team and him donning the India jersey again. But, his preparations for the next edition of the IPL has begun and while the senior team will be busy playing the Ranji Trophy game from Sunday, Dhoni will continue training till the time he is in Ranchi,” Kumar added.

Recently, Dhoni was dropped from the Central Contract and it created a lot of speculation regarding his retirement. However, it looks like Dhoni can make a comeback if he performs well in the IPL.
