He’s played so many games for us, won so many games for us and moving forward, we feel making him bat at No. 4 is ideal. For a long period of time, MS Dhoni has been finishing games off, but we want him to bat freely now, without that pressure.We were not sure what the ideal score would be, with dew and the wicket playing weirdly. So I thought 180 was a great effort. he also complimented kl Rahul for his knock of 61 It was a great move, for KL Rahul to start at the top. He was not part of the ODI squad, but he came here and showed he belonged. He batted magnificently. And great finish to the innings by MS (Dhoni) and Manish Pandey. Pandey hasn’t had much game time in the middle, so to come out and bat like that is good.]]>
