MS Dhoni scored an unbeaten 42 in India's defeat against South Africa in the fourth ODI in Johannesburg. The finisher in MS Dhoni wasn't quite able to guide his team through in the game. 

He was down to practice straightway after the defeat and was down to his big-hitting best. He was seen hitting the ball hard at the nets. Doing this he was sharpening his skills after drawing a fair bit of criticism on social media for scoring slowly at the back end of the Indian innings. 

South Africa by virtue of their victory at the Wanderers are back in the series and have given themselves a very good chance of drawing the six-match series.It was the comeback game of AB de Villiers in a match which was called the "Pink ODI"  which is played for a special cause, namely treatment of breast cancer. 

India, on the other hand, have things to sort out before the next game. Yuzvendra Chahal bowling that crucial no ball which gave David Miller a life which turned around the match for the Proteas. This highlighted a lot of criticism from former Indian skipper and cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar who went on to question Team India's professionalism after the defeat. 

The fifth ODI will be played tomorrow in Port Elizabeth. 

Watch how Dhoni hits it big at the nets.
