Former Indian National Cricket Team player Sanjay Manjrekar was at the receiving end of heavy trolls after he urged the management to rest MS Dhoni from the third ODI between Indian National Cricket Team and Australia at Ranchi.
Meanwhile, the men in blues are currently leading the five-match series 2-0. The home side kept their nerves strong in the second ODI at Nagpur to seal a thrilling win by eight runs. Vijay Shankar bowled a terrific last over to defend 11 runs giving away just two runs and picking two wickets. That victory, coupled with India’s six-wicket win in the first game in Hyderabad means that Australia have to win everything from here to keep going in the five-match series. However, it doesn’t reflect the true picture of how the Australians have played in the series so far. They had India at 99 for four in the first game, and then at Nagpur, Marcus Stonis kept them in line in their chase. Virat Kohli & Co have handled pressure well which has been the difference between both the sides.
With a comfortable lead in the series, the cricketer turned commentator Sanjay Manjrekar opined to rest MS Dhoni from the Ranchi ODI. Meanwhile, with age on the wrong side, this may be the last ODI for the former skipper in his home town. The 37-year-old cricketer is likely to announce his retirement after the 2019 ICC World Cup.
“Think India should rest Dhoni today.
#RanchiODI,” Sanjay Manjrekar tweeted.

Meanwhile, Indian National Cricket team fielded an unchanged XI that won the Nagpur ODI. Virat Kohli & Co will look to continue their dominance and wrap up the series with two matches still to play. Also, they are wearing the camouflaged caps in the memory of the jawans who lost their lives in the recent Pulwama attack. Moreover, the players will also donate the match fees from this game to the family of martyrs.
