India cricketer Suresh Raina feels that MS Dhoni should bat up the order in ODIs. According to him, number four position is best suited to Dhoni's style of play in one-day internationals. The former Indian skipper hit three consecutive half-centuries in the recently concluded ODI series against Australia. Raina reckons Dhoni can still finish the games even if he comes up the order.

“Last couple of games (against Australia), he has been batting well. He can bat well with the tail-enders also. If he can bat at four, he can also finish games with the five, six and seven. A lot of players can play around him,” Raina told Sportstar.

“He has been playing with a positive frame of mind. He is hitting the ball really well, and most importantly, he is getting a lot of backup and support from Virat (Kohli). If you have the support of the captain, then you just go out there and express yourself. The No 4 slot suits him,” he added.
