MS Dhoni News: In which position MS Dhoni should bat?
However, there is good news for MS Dhoni fans, as Chennai Super Kings head Coach Stephen Fleming confirmed that CSK skipper MS Dhoni will bat "relatively high", without revealing the exact batting position.
"MS will bat relatively high. It's not necessarily a position with him, but a time that we may choose depending on what conditions we see. But he will definitely play a more prominent role as a batsman. We've picked (Kedar) Jadhav, (Ambati) Rayudu, (Ravindra) Jadeja & (Dwayne) Bravo so we can plan the middle phase. Looking at our side, there are a lot of multi-skilled players, and while not diminishing their main skills there is a lot of options that we can use," Fleming said during an interaction on Monday.
However, speaking about the death-overs plans Fleming said "I do see Thakur as a bowler for the slog and he's done it for India. He has been with me in Pune Supergiant during his developmental phase. He has got real talent. The challenge for those two players (Thakur and Chahar) is to find their consistency in performance.
"In a training game, often you don't get up as much as you do for a real match. We saw a drop in standards. It was good learning and that's part of a practice match. It's about just understanding where your players are at. They will be working hard in the next few days," said by former Kiwi skipper.
