Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s face-to-face with media:
When media people asked the Indian Cricket team captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni about the team’s victorious performance, he just said that ‘the credit simply goes to the new talent and their discoveries to get the major takeaway’.
And in the top rank, I rank Jasprit Bumrah (one of the new entrants in Indian pace bowler) on rank one without him the whitewash will never be on Indian side- M.S. Dhoni added.
As a debutant, he has managed to take 2 wickets in consolation 50-over victory of India over Australia, but in T-20 he has come back with some powerful performances and able to add another six wickets into his account- Dhoni told.
Cold rivalry, India vs. Sri Lanka:
Though India has become the number one in the international T20 cricket rankings, still it must have to sweep aside Sri Lanka to retain its coveted position. On the counterpart, Sri Lanka is also aiming to win the T20 championship series which will in turn helps Sri Lanka cricket team to leapfrog India and the West Indies into the top spot.
Both Sri Lanka as well as India will not only intend to search the winning momentum and combination but also board the boat to get ranked one which will act as an additional booster of confidence.
