With wobbly knees and a paunch that hinted proudly of fun evenings, Ravi Shastri overseered MS Dhoni’s batting practice on Wednesday. In the throwdown wing of the nets that was sandwiched between fast bowlers and spinners’ nets, balls were fired short at his body. At times Dhoni went for the pull, often he tried to side-step to the leg side and get the upper cut going. At the end of the stint, Shastri sidled up alongside Dhoni and was seen mimicking the cut and the pull.

Amit Mishra available for 4th ODI, says Harbhajan Singh
