MS Dhoni passes the ball to batting coach Sanjay Bangar and says ‘Ball lele nahi to bolega retirement lerahe hain’ after India beat Australia by seven wickets to win the three-match ODI series 2-1 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). The veteran stalwart – Dhoni bagged the ‘Man of the Series’ for hitting three consecutive half-centuries and for also being the highest run-getter of the series with 193 runs. Two of them at Adelaide and MCG came in a winning cause. Dhoni passed the ball to assistant Bangar after his match-winning 87* because late last year when India toured England and after the ODI he had given the ball to the umpires, media felt that he is going to retire. That is the reason why Dhoni was careful this time around.
Here is the video:

Ask Dhoni, who was on Friday promoted to the No. 4 spot and ended up belting a 114-ball unbeaten 87 to guide India to a maiden 2-1 ODI series win against the Kangaroos in their own backyard, the 37-year-old is “happy to bat at any number”.
“It is not about where you want to bat; I am happy to bat at any number and after playing for 14 years I can’t say that I don’t want to bat at number six and want to bat at four,” said Dhoni, who was adjudged the Man-of-the-Series.
