Ranchi: All eyes were on skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who looked in a good mood on his home ground, as the India team practiced for two-and-a-half hours ahead of their third one-dayer against England to be held on Saturday.
Sporting a big smile, Dhoni was the first to enter the HEC International Cricket Stadium ahead of the team bus and exchanged pleasantries with Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) officials.
He took a stroll even as his other teammates joined him for a net session. Although the players stayed away from the rigours of nets, coach Duncan Fletcher was seen knocking a few balls.
Indians had a good catching practice session and the football game, which usually marks the start of their net session, took place at the end today as Yuvraj Singh joined them late at the ground.
England, meanwhile, cancelled their scheduled afternoon practice on Thursday.
The five-match ODI series is currently levelled at 1-1.
