Dhoni happy that Rohit Sharma clicked in Mohali ODI

Jan 23 2013, 11:30am CST | by

Mohali (Punjab), Jan 23 (IANS) India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni Wednesday said he was happy that batsman Rohit Sharma clicked well after being sent out to open the innings for India in the fourth one-Day International (ODI) cricket match against England at the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) Stadium here.

Mohali (Punjab), Jan 23 — India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni Wednesday said he was happy that batsman Rohit Sharma clicked well after being sent out to open the innings for India in the fourth one-Day International (ODI) cricket match against England at the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) Stadium here.

India, who beat England by five wickets here, clinched the five-match series 3-1. The last encounter at Dharamsala will be played Jan 27.

"We had a discussion with him some time before and we gave him time to think about it. We all felt he is someone who can be a really good opener in the sense he cuts and pulls really well...it was an opportunity for him. The good thing was he took it as a challenge and I am glad he scored runs because he is one of the most god-gifted talent that is around," Dhoni said.

"It's very important that he capitalises on that. An innings like this was very much needed for him. It will give him a lot of confidence and also time at the top level. Personally, I am very happy for him," Dhoni told reporters after the victory.

A partnership between Rohit Sharma (83 runs) and Suresh Raina (89 not out) Wednesday saw the game here slipping away from England.

Dhoni was all praise for Suresh Raina scoring well and becoming a match-finisher.

The Indian captain, who sustained a thumb injury during practice before Wednesday's match, said he had not decided whether he will play the next match in Dharamsala.

"We will see...I didn't have a chance to speak to the selectors. It is definitely an opportunity but we will see. I can't really confirm anything now," he said.

He admitted that India conceded 100 runs in the last 10 overs to England but defended his young bowlers.

"We thought 260 would be a good total to chase because the wicket was quite good. Overall, we are happy with the performance of the bowlers because you must realise that they are new bowlers, they haven't played a lot of international cricket," Dhoni said.

Cricket Statistics: Is Moeen Ali's 6/67 vs. India a Sign of Things to Come?

Aug 1 2014 3:29am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Moeen Ali's capture of 6/67 in India's second innings to propel England to an emphatic victory in the third Test at the Ageas Bowl has suddenly heightened the sense that the bearded all-rounder could develop into a front-line spinner for Alastair Cook's side.  Prior to the summer—even prior to this Test—Moeen was widely viewed as a stylish batsman, who, at best, would be capable of holding down a part-time role with the bal ...

Moeen Ali Shows Potential to Offer England Spin and Balance After Graeme Swann

So, England's spin-bowling cupboard may not be so bare after all. Moeen Ali showed that he was more than just a part-timer by bagging a six-wicket haul in England's 266-run win over India in the third Test at Southampton. The Worcestershire all-rounder now has 18 Test wickets at an average of 32.11 from his first five Test appearances. Throw in a century with the bat and it marks a highly encou ...

England Must Accept Only A Win Now Good Enough vs. India in 3rd Test

Jul 29 2014 3:02pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

There are only so many times a side can "take the positives" from a promising, if ultimately unsuccessful performance. There comes a time when you just have to win. For England, that time is now, with India 246 runs behind with just two first-innings wickets remaining in the third Test at the Ageas Bowl. Just as winning can become a habit, so can forgetting how to get over the line. Alastair Cook's side have be ...
