While the English players had their practice session in the morning, the Indians started their nets in the afternoon.<br /> <br /> After taking the hit from a pace bowler, Dhoni was down on his knees and looked in considerable pain.<br /> <br /> Team physio immediately rushed to the scene and later on the coach too arrived to check on Dhoni. The skipper could be seen shaking his right hand in a desperate attempt to relieve himself off the pain.<br /> <br /> However, Dhoni then decided to take on the spinners and continued nets for another 10 minutes. The team management said that Dhoni was "okay" and there was nothing serious.<br /> <br /> Local liaison officer, Vicky Banga told PTI that Dhoni was okay and he had left for team hotel after the incident. He even signed a few autographs for the fans before leaving the stadium.<br /> <br /> Incidentally, Dhoni had taken <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/cricket-articles/India-vs-England-2012-13-MS-Dhoni-survives-injury-scare-ahead-of-Ranchi-ODI/22175" target="_blank">a hit in similar fashion</a> during the practice session in his homeground in Ranchi on the eve of the last one-dayer.
