Former India skipper MS Dhoni was seen having a ball ever since Team India landed in Ranchi for the 3rd ODI. As the Indian team walked out of the airport, Dhoni was spotted behind the wheels in his hummer, where he gave Kedar Jadhav and Rishabh Pant a joy ride. In the night, Dhoni and Sakshi also hosted a dinner for the entire team at his swanky farmhouse in Ranchi. Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal was so impressed with the dinner and the host that he took to Twitter to thank Dhoni and Sakshi for the evening. Chahal’s post read, “Thank you for last night @msdhoni bhai and @SaakshiSRawat bhabhi.”
The team looked in a good space ahead of the Ranchi game which should help them in the 3rd ODI.
Meanwhile, Dhoni registered a rare golden duck in the second ODI at Nagpur. But he made up for it with the gloves in his hand as India went on to win the match by eight runs to take a handsome 2-0 lead in the ongoing five-match ODI series. With the win at Nagpur, India also became the second team after Australia to register 500 ODI wins.
Dhoni is expected to play a pivotal role for the Men in Blue in the upcoming World Cup. He will bring all his experience to the table which would be invaluable for the team.
The Ranchi ODI is slated to be played on March 8 where India will look to seal the series with a win.
