MS Dhoni has returned to the Indian setup, and while fans have been eagerly waiting to see him hit those towering sixes again, Dhoni is upto something different in the nets.
MS Dhoni has always taken a lot of pride in his bowling. During the IPL season last year, KP and Dhoni engaged in a fun conversation over Dhoni getting KP out during a test match in England(though the decision was later overturned by the 3rd umpire), showing how fond Dhoni is of his bowling stints.
BCCI today released a video of Dhoni trying to swing the ball in the nets at Dharamshala, as the Indian team prepares for the 1st ODI against familiar foes, Sri Lanka.
In the video, you can Dhoni bowling a brilliant ball to Axar Patel, who is beaten all ends up!

Virat Kohli has been rested for the ODI series for his alleged wedding in Italy and Rohit Sharma will be leading the side in his absence. MS Dhoni would be using all his experience to guide Rohit during his first captaincy stint with the Indian national side.
India would be hoping to start the series on a high with a win in Dharamshala, something that looks highly probable with the kind of one-day form the team is in. Virat Kohli’s absence would be felt, but the youngsters have a huge chance to step to the occasion and let the world take notice.
