Don't need to use my back as my arms can do the job: Dhoni

Press Trust of India  |  Mohali 

Singh Dhoni's powerful forearms won many a matches for and no wonder the former has confidence to clear the boundary even when he is suffering from excruciating

For lofted shots, a batsman needs to maintain shape while transfering body weight into the shot. However against Kings XI Punjab last night, the Chennai Super Kings was in real but kept clearing the ropes with consummate ease.

Dhoni's unbeaten 79 off 44 balls got CSK agonisingly close to the target before the visitors fell short by four runs.

When asked how he could hit those lofted shots with a painful back, replied: "The back is pretty bad but God has given me lot of power and I don't need to use my back a lot. My arms can do the job."

However maintained that it was not a very serious

"It shouldn't be too bad because I know what happened. And when you know the extent of your injury, you know how bad it really is," he said.
