India’s limited over captain M S Dhoni on Wednesday suffered a minor injury during the third and final T20 match against Zimbabwe in Harare.
It happened during India’s batting innings when Dhoni tried to come down the track and tried to hit Zimbabwe pacer Donald Tiripano bowl out of the park. However, Dhoni failed to connect cleanly and played the ball onto the stumps after which the bail popped out and hit Dhoni’s right eye.
Dhoni took to social media site Facebook to share his picture and captioned it as :
“That’s what happens when u get hit by bails,lucky only had to keep wkts with blurred vision and pain.”
India overcame the last-minute blues to pip Zimbabwe by three runs in the third and final T20 International and pocket the series 2-1 at the Harare Sports Club.
India’s young bowling unit put on a collective effort to restrict the hosts to 135/8 after wicketkeeper-batsman Kedar Jadhav’s half century pushed the visitors to 138/6 in their stipulated 20 overs.
