Speaking at an awards ceremony hosted in his honour following his return to the state after winning the Twenty-20 World Cup last month, Dhoni said the five-match one-day series starting November 6 would be a tough one.

“A very important series is coming up against Pakistan…They are important matches and quite a tough series. Hopefully we will play well,” Dhoni said.

Ace off-spinner Harbhajan Singh endorsed his captain’s words, saying, “Pakistan will be a very good series. They are coming after a long time. We are looking forward to playing good cricket.”

Dhoni received a car and rupees five lakhs as award for his skillful captainship, which saw India lifting the T20 World Cup after defeating Pakistan in the finals in South Africa.

India will play five one-day matches series against Pakistan starting from November 6.

The first match will be played at the Nehru stadium in Guwahati. The five one-dayers will be followed by three Test matches. (ANI)
