A day before the fourth ODI at Ranchi, fans witnessed a fascinating sight, as Indian skipper and local Ranchi boy MS Dhoni left a couple of New Zealand players absolutely zapped! The teams landed here today on the eve of the fourth ODI, which is a must-win for the visitors as they are currently trailing 1-2 in the five-match series.
While New Zealand left for their hotel from the airport in the team bus, Dhoni was photographed driving his posh Hummer around the streets of Ranchi. In a picture clicked today, Dhoni is seen behind the wheels of his luxurious car, with New Zealand batsmen Tom Latham and Ross Taylor, looking at Dhoni in absolute amazement from their team bus. The photo went viral on all social networking sites, as the macho surrounding Dhoni was on display.
Recently, Dhoni opened up about his superlative knock at Mohali, where he scored 80, in order to strike form, batting at number 4. “There were points in the middle where I had to pull myself out of the instinct to simply rotate,” said Dhoni. “Batting with Virat helps; the reason being that both of us can hit boundaries and push for those singles and doubles. Right from the start, he’s somebody who always wanted to improve and win games for India. Even if he got 60-70 runs, he wanted to convert it into a big innings. He’s someone who has learnt a lot.”
“He knows his strength well and executes his plan. If he can bat the way he’s batting, each and every individual will be happy. He’s not only made the fans proud, but also the parents and family. That’s what you look to do,” the Indian captain said after the third ODI. India will be looking to wrap up the series at Ranchi in style before heading to Vishakhapatnam.
