MSD su­per­vises team train­ing in ab­sence of coach Ravi Shastri

Mid Day - - SPORT - SAN­TOSH SURI sports@mid-day.com

In the ab­sence of the sup­port staff who are set to ar­rive with the re­main­ing five play­ers on Sun­day morn­ing, the se­nior-most player in the team, MS Dhoni su­per­vised the nets at the ICC Academy.

He stood where gen­er­ally Ravi Shastri would have stood dur­ing the nets ses­sion, keep­ing a keen eye on bowlers and bats­men.

It may be an in­di­ca­tion of the fu­ture role MSD may choose to play once his play­ing ca­reer comes to an end. It could well be af­ter the next year’s World Cup in UK.

Though it’s a long shot, there can be no deny­ing that if MSD chooses such a role, his in­volve­ment as a coach can only be ben­e­fi­cial for Team In­dia.
