Dhoni Double knock – India in a Strong Position


He is the person who plays unorthodox cricket all the time, but succeeded very few times. But today, the person who is the captain of Indian Cricket team came up with brilliant double century knock against Aussies. Kohli too batted well.

The first session started well, all are eager to see for Sachin’s Century, but Lyon damaged the hopes. And there comes the big man Mahendra Singh Dhoni, started firmly. His strike rate is almost nearer t0 100%. Meanwhile Kohli completed his 4th Test hundred and went to pavilion after a bad shot. And there after Dhoni was in crease for long period while the other end tail enders were just coming and going to pavilion. Then Dhoni started hitting hardly and runs came up quickly.

150 passed.

And finally he got his first double ton, and there was no excitement for him to get that knock, perhaps he might be tired.!! 😉

200 crossed.

And in the other end Bhuvneswar was defending very well, giving complete support for Dhoni to go for it. Hope Dhoni play for the first session and tomorrow and quickly get his triple ton 🙂
