The Indian team enjoyed its first training session in Dambulla ahead of the 1st one-dayer of the five-match series. Limited-overs specialists Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav also took part in the session.
Dhoni, in particular, warmed-up pretty nicely in the practice session. He started with facing the pacers in the nets and changed gears for the Sunday’s clash. India are heading as favorites for the limited-overs series.
Dhoni continues to remain an impact-full image in the Indian dressing room. He handed over the captaincy baton to Virat Kohli ahead of the Champions Trophy. But, he is still an inspirational figure in the dressing room.
Every now and then, MS Dhoni is seen giving advice to captain Kohli, setting fields and taking DRS calls. The Indian team, meanwhile, is heading into the series with a 3-0 spanking of Sri Lanka in the Test series.
