Team India completed its systematic obliteration of the visitors early on the morning of Day 4 when Shahbaz Nadeem claimed both the remaining wickets to inflict another innings loss to the visitors. This is the fifth successive Test win for India. After having lost the second Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in Perth back in December, the Men in Blue have proceeded to win six out of the seven Test matches.

The caravan started with the Boxing Day Test at the MCG where Pujara’s knock followed by Jasprit Bumrah’s 6/33 paved way for India taking a winning lead in Australia for the very first time. It should have been 3-1 at the end of the fourth Test in Sydney but for the inclement weather.

The caravan then moved to the West Indies, where once again the India fast bowlers-led by Jasprit Bumrah’s twin five-wicket-hauls- paved way for a 2-0 whitewash of the team from the Caribbean. If Bumrah was the spearhead in the West Indies, Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav took the mantle upon themselves to inflict the damage on the South Africans. 

Dhoni makes a visit to Team India’s dressing room

Speaking of Ranchi, the local boy- MS Dhoni, was in the dressing room to witness Team India script history on the fourth day of the third Test. Former Indian captain, Dhoni might have remained away from the hustle and bustle of International cricket since the 2019 World Cup but the mercurial wicketkeeper-batsman continues to remain in the news.

Dhoni, who has not featured in any International match since that heartbreaking World Cup semi-final defeat against the New Zealanders at Old Trafford back in July, is expected to miss the three-match Twenty20 series Bangladesh.

With a lot of uncertainty around Dhoni’s cricketing future, his presence in the dressing room gave another chance to the journalists to ask Virat about the former captain. In reply, Kohli did not speak much before giving a sarcastic reply. Replying to the journalists, Kohli said, “He is here in the dressing room, come say hello to him.”

Meanwhile, the new BCCI President Sourav Ganguly is set to meet with the selectors to talk about their thoughts on Dhoni’s future.
