Indian cricketer Munaf Patel is likely to join the Congress ahead of the general elections.

 

Meanwhile, the Baroda bowler, whose career has been racked by injuries and poor form, feels the Indian bowlers were going for plenty of runs in the death overs in the last few series, prompting Dhoni to criticise them, PTI reported.

 

“When you bowl in slog overs, you need to know what is the kind of delivery you are going to bowl and the area, because a lot of runs are conceded in the slog overs. In the last few months and last few series we have been giving away a lot of runs in the slog overs and perhaps, because of that Dhoni said that bowlers need to use brains.”

 

Munaf said the presence of senior bowler Zaheer Khan in the two-Test rubber that began today at Auckland would help the youngsters, as they can learn from him.
