India’s legendary former captain and current wicketkeeper, MS Dhoni, may have played his final one day international cricket match in his home country. According to an ESPN report, Dhoni will be rested for the final two games of the five-match series against Australia, even though the visitors managed to defeat India in a convincing, 32-run fashion in the third ODI on Friday, holding off a series defeat for at least one more game. Not only does the series hang in the balance on Sunday, but the two matches are the last two 50-overs contests for the Men in Blue prior to the Cricket World Cup in May. But Rishabh Pant will wear the gloves for India in the fourth ODI, which will live stream from Mohali.
