New Delhi: Mahendra Singh Dhoni failed to bring India’s innings back on track in the first T20I against England played at Kanpur.
No more the captain of India’s limited-overs squad, the Ranchi-born cricketer scored unbeaten 36 runs off 27 balls, but failed to unleash lusty blows as a result of some excellent death over bowling by England.
With Dhoni still at the crease, India’s scoreboard read 135/6 after 19 overs.
Eoin Morgan asked Chris Jordan to bowl the final over.
MS Dhoni hammered the first ball, a full-toss, down the ground but Jordan hurt his hand while trying to stop it. The bowler was seen in pain after trying to stop the powerful shot.

Dhoni scored boundaries off the next two balls, but could manage just two runs off the remaining three.
Men in Blue are currently trailing 1-0 in the three-match T20I series.
