India skipper MS Dhoni yesterday gave enough indication that his team has begun preparing for the 2015 World Cup.

Dhoni promoted Raina to the No 4 position and the left-hander scored 39 off 45 balls. “We promoted Suresh to No 4 as we want him to bat at that position for a long period considering the upcoming World Cup,” said Dhoni after the last night’s match.

“We have Yuvraj who bats at No 4, but we also want to groom an extra player for that position, because if Yuvraj is injury free till 2015 and is batting well, then he will bat there, else we have an option. That’s the crucial spot we need to fill at the moment,” added Dhoni.
