Dhoni bowls under Raina's captaincy!

Durban, Oct 23: Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni, switched his role and played under Suresh Raina's captaincy in their last league match against Yorkshire at Kingsmead, Durban on Monday.

MS Dhoni, who is always seen behind the stumps, for a change bowled two overs, though they were expensive, it was refreshing to see wicket-keeper Dhoni as a bowler.

While Wriddhiman Saha chose to keep the wickets, Dhoni also made a fine fielding effort in the third over of Yorkshire's innings, as he tried to stop the ball from reaching the boundary was well appreciated.

When the crowd waited for Dhoni to bowl, the skipper did oblige as the moment arrived in the 15th over when Yorkshire were at 88/3.

While the first over was quite impressive, as Dhoni conceded just 7 runs, the second over witnessed two deliveries going over the top.

He also bowled the 17th over, he was hit for 2 sixes as the overall tally touched 25 off 2 overs which eventually helped Yorkshire to post a decent total of 140/6 as they were suffering to score runs before Dhoni came to bowl.

Though this is not the first time, Dhoni has bowled in international cricket, it was indeed refreshing for everyone to see Dhoni in a new avatar.
