The former India skipper MS Dhoni was seen rolling his arms before the first ODI against Sri Lanka in Dharmashala. Dhoni, the wicket-keeper batsman bowled in nets. However, it is highly unlikely we will see him doing the same in the match tomorrow.
In the video uploaded by BCCI on their official Twitter handle, Dhoni can be seen bowling three deliveries to left-handed all-rounder Akshar Patel. Out of 3, the Ranchi lad successfully beat the batsman twice.
The line and length of former 'captain cool' were similar to what he used to expect from his bowlers under his captaincy.
BCCI uploaded the video with the caption, "Is there anything that @msdhoni cannot do? You have seen him bowl leg spin now it is time for seam up. #INDvSL."
India will be facing Sri Lanka without Virat Kohli. In his absence, Rohit Sharma will lead India in the three-match One-Day International (ODI) series against Sri Lanka, starting Sunday at Dharamshala.
The Rohit-led side will eye yet another whitewash against the Lankan to get the number one spot in ICC rankings. The last time India faced Sri Lanka in the 50-over series, Kohli's men whitewashed them with 5-0.
