Dhoni joined the rest of the team on Friday and after a day's rest attended practice, facing the Indian fast bowlers at the nets.

Ishant Sharma and Varun Aaron were the most spirited of the bowlers as they worked up genuine pace and beat the bat of frontline batsmen Shikhar Dhawan, Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara on several occasions. Dhoni also faced the in-form pacers on one of the three practice pitches.

Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and newcomer Karn Sharma occupied one of the pitches while the third one was used by the batsmen to face throw-downs.
