MS Dhoni won't bat higher up the order in Asia Cup

Before team India’s departure to Bangladesh for the T20 Asia Cup, skipper MS Dhoni addressed the media and spoke on a number of issues. Dhoni though, made it absolutely certain that he wouldn’t be promoting himself higher up the order in the upcoming Asia Cup. With India’s top order looking solid and well settled, Dhoni is in no mood to experiment.

“In a normal scenario, I don’t see myself batting higher up the order because of the batting order we have. Of course if we have a partnership where everyone is doing well till 18th or 19th over then I can promote myself. Other than that, in a normal scenario I don’t see myself giving that promotion,” Dhoni said in his usual calm and composed style.

“Virat at three then Raina, Yuvraj, I’m six then Jadeja and Hardik, but we may try one of the hitters to go up and express maybe from the very first ball. But whether I see myself getting that promotion, I think it will be slightly difficult,” Dhoni added.

“The good thing is we played three games in Australia. The conditions were very different in Australia but then we played in Sri Lanka. It gave us the time to settle into the format. You’ve to take the price tag away from the wicket. It’s always easier to switch from T20 to Test format than from Test to T20. It’s good for us that we are getting these number of games. We can try a few things. It’s the same format. Often you don’t get too many games before the World T20 so it’s good to have some games to get into the groove,” Dhoni said.
