After clinching the ODI series in the 3rd match at the Bay Oval, the Indian team led by stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma hit the ground running in the training session ahead of the fourth ODI at Hamilton.

MS Dhoni, who missed out in the 3rd match, was seen at the nets, which is great news for India as the former captain has hit good form this year and his presence in the playing XI will be a welcome addition, especially in the absence of Virat Kohli.

Hardik Pandya, who made a clinical comeback to the side in the 3rd ODI, looked in a good groove. India could give the reserves a go-ahead in this match to test the bench-strength and young pacer Khaleel Ahmed was seen going through his paces.

The match will also be a momentous one for Rohit Sharma, as he will become the 14th cricketer to play 200 ODIs for India with Sachin Tendulkar (463) leading the list. Among the current cricketers, Virat Kohli (222) and MS Dhoni (334) are the others to achieve this milestone.

With 7 wins out of 8 matches, the right-hander has a stellar record as a skipper and he will be looking to continue his winning run when he takes the field in Hamilton.
