MS Dhoni might have been dropped from the T20 squad against West Indies and Australia, but this has not stopped the former skipper from attending the practice session at the Brabourne Stadium ahead of the ODI games. The former skipper of India was seen sweating it out in the optional practice session on Sunday ahead of the fourth ODI between India and West Indies. As per reports, Dhoni batted for about 45 minutes against the local bowlers. MS Dhoni Graciously Supported the Idea of a Second Wicket-Keeper in T20, Says MSK Prasad.

Dhoni has not been in the best of his form of late. In the second ODI in Vizag MS Dhoni scored 20 runs off 25 balls and then scored 7 runs at the Maharashtra Cricket Association, Pune. Now on Sunday, half an hour after the commencement of the nets, Dhoni was the seventh player to step into nets. A few fans had turned up to catch a glimpse of their favourite player during the nets in Mumbai. Once Dhoni stepped in, the former skipper suddenly became the centre of attention. MS Dhoni EXCLUDED From T20 Squad for Series Against West Indies and Australia; Virat Kohli Rested for Caribbean T20 Matches, Rohit Sharma to Lead the Team.

After joking with Manish Pandey for about a few minutes, Dhoni stepped into the nets. After mistiming a few shots, Dhoni was finally in his vintage touch 15 minutes down the line. He was seen speaking to Indian batting coach Sanjay Bangar for about 10 minutes. Check out the pictures of practice session which went viral.
