Mumbai : It will be the last match for India’s most successful captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni to lead a team to the cricket ground. The game which gave him glory, name, fame and every other thing which he deserves. MS Dhoni will lead the India A team in the first warm-up match against England at Mumbai.

The 2011 World Cup hero Yuvraj Singh, will also try to prove his mental as the team is preparing for the upcoming Champions Trophy which they won in 2013.

Veteran Ashish Nehra who is coming back from a surgery will like to hit the straps as his skills against  England.

Yuvraj will also get some crucial practice as he has also been out of action for more than month and half due to his marriage. Equally important will be for Shikhar Dhawan, who was out with thumb fracture and since then did little in Ranji matches that he has played.

Not always does a warm-up game become an emotional affair and Dhoni is the last person to show any emotions but it does become special when Virat Kohli says that the first thing that comes to mind when one mentions MS Dhoni is ‘Captain’.

So it will be an occasion to remember when Dhoni leads some of the senior team boys for a much-needed game time against Eoin Morgan’s England—a side that has been better in shorter formats over the years.
