Team India limited overs captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is keeping himself busy these days in his own way. Ever since, he retired from Test cricket in December, 2014 midway during the Australia tour, he seems to find ample amount of time to spend with his family and friends. However, Dhoni also finds enough time to hit the gym, net-practice and drills to keep himself fit and active for the upcoming ODI tours that Team India is scheduled to play in.
In fact, ‘Mahi’ is one of the fittest cricketers on the planet, whether he is behind the wickets or in front of them. But apart from cricket, today he paid a visit to Ranchi’s famous Deori temple to offer prayers. It is one of his favourite temples and he had even visited the place with wife Sakshi after marriage in 2010 to seek blessings from Maa Durga in this famous shrine.
As far as playing cricket is concerned, in the year 2016, Team India has played more of Test cricket than the limited formats, and Test captain Virat Kohli has hogged the limelight finding immense success in India’s series’ victories over West Indies, New Zealand and England. However, for ‘Mahi’, he had assignments coming his way with gaps, as he got ample time to strike a balance between cricket and personal life.
