England beats India A in a thriller

England has won their warm up game against India A. the last time Dhoni captained India and the game did not end up in the favor of India. India A did make a handsome total while batting first. They made 334 runs and England have chased them.

From both sides there was a great displaying of batting. On a batting track both Indian and English batters enjoyed their stay. They hit the ball in the right areas and made sure that they get a lot of batting practice in the game for the ODI series starting soon.This was a really tight contest and no doubt the England side played really well. Dhoni is no more the captain of team India. This now cements this thought that Dhoni has decided when to retire from international cricket. He has already taken his retirement from the test series.

Now it will be the ODIS and T20 format which the former Indian captain will say good bye too. Like every big player Dhoni finally has started to consider the retirement plan. He will not be a part of Indian squad in the 2019 world cup. If this was the case Dhoni might have not left the captainship. So this is now certain that Dhoni is not planning the 2019 world cup. A couple of years more may be. The exact time for the retirement is only known to one man and that is Dhoni himself.

As for the game Team India batted first and made 304 runs on board. Rydhu hit hundred in the game. There were a couple of more innings which helped India A to reach this total. Dhoni himself made 20 off runs. The wicket was really good for batting.

England went for the chase and they too were right up there in the race. They hit the Indian bowlers to all parts of the park. The wicket was really good and did not change much which helped England in the second innings as well. England maintained a good run rate in the chase. At the end England did lose 7 wickets but they made sure that they don’t lose the game. Adil Rashid helped his side in the final overs. He hit a couple of fours and then Woakes was also there helping him. The fast bowler hit a few boundaries as well. This is a good start for England. They lost the test series badly and hence if they could win the ODI and T20 series then they will be able to help themselves saving some respect.
