MS Dhoni bestows wicket-keeping gloves to Dinesh Karthik, elapses as fielder

MS Dhoni, who is a vital cog to Virat Kohli’s strategy in the upcoming World Cup, is probably the best wicket-keeper going around. With incredibly fast reflexes and unsullied game-awareness, the seasoned campaigner have rewritten the craft of ingenious wicket-keeping.

On the other hand, in the warmup conflict against New Zealand, Dhoni jogged out for field as a regular fielder and handed down over the gloves to Dinesh Karthik. He did not actually take the ground with the rest of team when India started to bowl, but arrived on to the ground some time later and ran across to field at the deep fine-leg and even generated a couple of smart saves, much to the fascination of the jam packed Indian crowd.

Having said that, Dinesh Karthik was not nearly as effective as he grassed a pretty easy catch off Kuldeep Yadav along with the on-air commentators were quick to mention the absence of MS Dhoni.

India failed to have an entirely good match against New Zealand since they were knocked over for 179 following which the Kiwis sought out down the target with relative ease.

Kohli confessed his side couldn’t implement their plans.

“Didn’t go to plan. Good challenge up front though. We can expect that in some places in England when conditions are overcast. From 50 for 4 to get to 180 was a good effort,” Kohli asserted after New Zealand overhauled the 180-run target in 37.1 overs.
