It is no secret that former India cricket loves football and in his initial growing up years was a goalkeeper before he took up cricket. MS Dhoni was spotted taking part in a football match alongside Bollywood stars Abhishek Bachchan and Ranbir Kapoor, who play the sport regularly as well. All the footballers were spotted wearing a jersey where ‘Playing for humanity’ was written on it.

Dhoni and Abhishek are co-owners of Indian Super League side Chennaiyin FC while Ranbir is the owner of Mumbai City FC.
The ISL is currently on and Chennaiyan FC is at the bottom half on the points table.
Meanwhile, MS Dhoni is not a part of the Indian team touring Australia after he was dropped from the squad after a poor run of form in limited overs cricket. The former Indian captain has led India to two World Cup wins and wishes to play the ICC World Cup next year in England.
“I think whatever he has done, he’s done a great job. But I think the bad part is we are expecting the same 20 or 25 years old Dhoni, which is not going to work,” Kapil Dev said in an interview to NDTV.
“He has experience, if he can help the team with his experience, it’s well done. But one thing everyone should understand that he is not 20, and he is not going to be 20 again. So whatever he brings to the table, if he can make himself available and he can play good cricket, he is an asset to the team. Only his fitness is important and I wish he keeps on playing more matches,” he added.
