Indian team is currently in Port Elizabeth to play the fifth game of six-match ODI series against South Africa on 13th February. Team India has played some brilliant Cricket in ODI series by winning first 3 matches and managing to take a valuable lead. Still, South Africans have won the fourth ODI at Johannesburg to keep the series alive.
Indian Team would certainly like to throw away their disappointing performance of the fourth ODI by playing some good cricket in the 5th ODI at Port Elizabeth. If India manages to win the 5th ODI, they will win the series and that would be their first-ever series win in South Africa. Indian team was seen practising with all the will a day prior to the Port Elizabeth match.
Dhoni was seen doing spin bowling in the video
One of the surprising things about the training was that wicket-keeper MS Dhoni was seen bowling spin in the nets along with Axar Patel. Dhoni who is equally responsible for the success of Chahal and Yadav by constantly advising them from behind the stumps was seen trying his hands with the spin in the video posted by BCCI on Twitter.
India would like to get back on track
The spinners who were the heroes in the first 3 ODIs turned into the villains as South African batsmen finally managed to get over them in the fourth ODI at the Johannesburg. The spin-duo of Chahal and Yadav, which tormented the South African batting line-up in first three ODIs were at the receiving end as they were smashed for 119 runs in the 11.3 overs they bowled. Chahal was particularly worse affected as he not only leaked 68 runs in his 5.3 overs but also he bowled a no-ball on which David Miller got out and that no-ball set the tone for South Africa.
