While Dhawan is known for his power-hitting, Bhajji is feared by opponents for his feisty attitude. (Dhawan hopes he and Rohit can supass Sachin-Sourav as openers) It was a stiff battle but it was clear after a few seconds that the younger Dhawan had a slight advantage. But Harbhajan, who is 35, gave the Delhi southpaw a good run for his money.However, it was not just fun and frolic for the Indian stars. All-rounders Hardik Pandya and Suresh Raina were seen striking the ball cleanly in the training session which was held under lights.After starting off their campaign against Bangladesh, India will take on arch-rivals Pakistan on Saturday before facing Sri Lanka next Tuesday. Their last league game is scheduled for Thursday (March 3) against the qualifiers, who will be confirmed tomorrow.Down the track and off she goes to the stands. @ImRaina hitting them clean #AsiaCup pic.twitter.com/CWMLVhsuzradvertisement BCCI (@BCCI) February 22, 2016last_img
