India captain Virat Kohli thanked former skipper MS Dhoni for hosting the team for dinner at his Ranchi residence ahead of the 3rd ODI against Australia. Kohli lavished praise for the great food and fun chats that the team had at his Ranchi farmhouse. The Indian captain took to Instagram and shared a picture of the team together. Kohli shared a picture where he is sharing the frame with Rishah Pant, Yuzvendra Chahal and MS Dhoni. The post was captioned, “Great night with the boys at mahi bhais place last night. Good food, fun chats all around and great energy. Perfect team evening.”

The team seems to be in a good space ahead of the 3rd ODI where India will look to seal the series.

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.
