Watch: MS Dhoni And His Daughter Fight It Out For A ‘Laddoo’
Ahead of the gruelling season, India got the much-needed one-week break before the forthcoming series against New Zealand and Mahendra Singh Dhoni is fully capitalising on it.
The former India skipper is spending some quality time with his family in Ranchi, and the latest video posted by him is enough to show that he is thoroughly enjoying his break. Not a very active Twitter user, the World Cup-winning skipper took to social media to post an adorable video, showing he and his daughter attacking a ‘laddoo’, an Indian sweet.
Dhoni will soon start his preparation for the upcoming limited-overs series against New Zealand. The 36-year old has managed to ease the pressure off himself with his recent performances and will be looking to continue the strong showing against the Kiwis too.
Meanwhile, India will also be looking to extend their winning run in the 50-over format this year. The Men in Blue have not lost a single ODI series this year and will enter the series against Kane Williamson & Co. as the hot favourites.
With series wins over England, West India, Sri Lanka and Australia in addition to making the final of the Champions Trophy, Virat Kohli & Co. are at the top of ODI rankings, and another series win will only bolster their position.
India squad for the ODI series:
Virat Kohli(c), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shardul Thakur
