Meanwhile, Dhoni is playing probably his last international game in his hometown Ranchi.

Ever since Dhoni arrived in his city of Ranchi there was a huge buzz around the place. He not only gave his mates a ride on his hummer but also hosted the entire team for dinner at his Ranchi farmhouse.

Meanwhile, ahead of the 3rd One Day International against Australia, skipper Virat Kohli said that the Indian cricket team will be dedicating the match fees to the Pulwama martyrs who sacrificed their lives in the recent terror attack in Kashmir. In honour of the Armed forces, all the members of Team India will also don camouflage caps.

“This is a special cap, it’s a tribute to our Armed forces. We’re all donating our match fees of this game to the families of the martyrs. I urge everyone in the country to do the same and stick to the families of our armed forces,” Kohli said after the toss on Friday.
