MS Dhoni jogged out to field as a regular fielder and handed over the gloves to Dinesh Karthik. He did not take the field with the rest of team when India started to bowl, but came on to the field a little while later and ran across to field at the deep fine-leg and even made a couple of smart saves, much to the delight of the packed Indian crowd.
