Cricket, Sports

In what could be Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s last campaign as the skipper of Indian T20 team, luck does not seem to be captain cool’s way. After the draws, India has been placed in the toughest of the two Super 10 Groups. In group 2, India clash with Australia, Pakistan and New Zealand, all of whom are formidable international T20 sides. Additionally, India have to cope with the winner of Qualifier Group 1 as well which could be Bangladesh. Bangladesh has come up leaps and bounds in limited overs cricket over the last few years so a clash with the Bangladeshis will not be a walk in the park.
