MS Dhoni rested for last 2 ODIs against Australia: Bangar
Ranchi : Team India coach Sanjay Bangar on Thursday said that Mahendra Singh Dhoni will not be playing last two ODIs against Australia.
MS Dhoni will not be playing the last two ODIs of the ongoing five-match series against Australia. He is going to take rest after this," Bangar said at a press conference after India lost the third ODI on Friday.
In the third ODI against Australia in Ranchi, Australia outplayed India
as Aaron Finch and Usman Khawaja helped fire Australia to score a massive 313-run target in a must-win match for their team at the JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi.
In a reply, India could manage only 281 runs in 48.2 overs with the help of Virat Kohli's responsible inning of 123 off 95 balls.
Chasing a target of 314 at the JSCA stadium here, Virat scored his 41st One Day International (ODI) century, 25th when batting second, and only his fourth in an unsuccessful chase.
The two teams will next lock horns on Sunday in Chandigarh.
