Dhoni should bat at No 3, says Gilchrist

“He’s (Dhoni) such a dangerous player to play against. I would like to see him bat up the order especially in the abbreviated version of the game. You want your best batsmen to face as many deliveries as possible,” Gilchrist told reporters here on Tuesday.

“He has a lot on his plate, I understand that. But I would encourage him to bat higher in the order,” Gilchrist said, adding, “Dhoni paces his innings well. But its his decision.”

Gilchrist said missing speedsters Brett Lee, Mitchell Johnson and all-rounder James Hopes, who have been ruled out of the second ODI due to injuries, was a huge blow for the Aussies.
“It will be a huge blow. Any injury is,” said Gilchrist.
