    Hit us if you can: Dhoni challenges Akhtar!!!

    BANGALORE, Jan 3: Flamboyant wicketkeeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni today challenged Pakistan to attack Indian batsmen with bouncers and short-pitched deliveries in the upcoming series.:

    Dhoni said the Indian team is prepared to face fiery spells from Shoaib Akhtar & Co.

    "We are ready for it (bouncers and short-pitched deliveries). If they (Pakistan) think so (that Indians are vulnerable to such bowling attacks), they should try it. We are ready to face bouncers and short-pitched deliveries," Dhoni told reporters here after being signed as brand ambassador by the Karnataka Soaps & Detergents Limited.

    The swashbuckling batsman said the series would be very tough and predicted an "even contest" as Pakistan is currently playing well as a unit.

    "The team that plays well throughout the series will win," he said

    Dhoni said he would try to give his cent per cent whether it's wicket-keeping or batting.

    The hard-hitting batsman also fielded questions on his personal life.

    Asked when he would get married, Dhoni remarked: "It's a good question. As of now, I have no plans." He also denied that he is dating anyone.

    Dhoni also brushed aside any possibility of his acting in any film. "My job is to play cricket, I will play cricket," he said.

    This series is again being build up as "Akhtar vs India series" .Akhtar has a history of getting hammering at the hands of Indian batsmen. Sehwag,Tendulkar,Yuvraj and Dravid had all made a mockery of the so called fastest bowler in the past.I think this time around Akhtar will face further problem against Indian batsmen as he would be facing a miracle called "Dhoni" for the first time around.

    My gut feeling is that Akhtar will have a very poor series (like always ) against India.

    Dhoni & co is going to make an example of Akhtar, Akhtar simply doesn't have the balls to stand up against Indian batsmen.
