MS Dhoni got his half-century in the fifth Test against England at The oval. Dhoni has been the lone man fighting against the England batting and has been the one responsible to take India past 100. Wickets have been falling at regular intervals and Dhoni is one man who has given them some stability. India are now 113 for nine with Ishant Sharma in the centre with Dhoni.
India were put in to bat and have been rattled by the England seamers. Chris Woakes, Chris Jordan and James Anderson have taken three wickets each and have kept India in check. Dhoni has been a mixture of caution and aggression, but the task is too tall for him
