Dhoni prefers country to club

Indian Skipper Wants Yuvi To Score A Hattrick Of Tons

There are still a few ifs and buts, but if the situation comes to a boil, he will prefer country to ‘club’.
When asked to react on BCCI’s request to ECB postpone the first Test in Ahmedabad for a day, so that Dhoni can represent Chennai Super Kings if they reach the final of the Champions League, the India captain said: “I haven’t thought about it, but if it comes to a boil I will prefer playing for the country.”
Meanwhile, talking about Thursday’s One-dayer against England, Dhoni said that he would be hoping for Yuvraj Singh to come good here also.“His two earlier knocks were instrumental in India pulling off big wins at Rajkot and Indore.”
“When he gets going, he is a champion. His strokeplay can upset the best bowlers of the game. And if he fires here also, it would be good for the team.”
He also put to rest, the doubts about Ishant Sharma’s fitness. “He is 100 per cent fit now,” Dhoni announced, but said that there won’t be too much tinkering with the team.
On RP Singh, the skipper said it’s always difficult for a player when he hasn’t been playing matches regularly. “That is the time a player needs the support of the team,” he added.
Mahi, as he is fondly referred to as, was cautious against complacency creeping in after the two comfortable wins. “2-0 lead in a seven-match encounter doesn’t mean much. As a team we have done well till now and would like to continue in the same fashion.”
About the Green Park wicket, he was of the view that toss won’t play a major part here. “It’s a good track, and I can’t foresee much wear and tear here as the game progresses.”
