MS Dhoni has increased his social media presence these days. He is now seen posting tweets and Instagram posts quite often and seems to be making full use of his free time with his daughter, Ziva.

Dhoni shared an adorable picture with his daughter on his Instagram profile. The skipper here can be seen in a full-bearded look – something which we are yet to see on and off the field. He captioned the post as “Guess who”, but his fans were quick to recognise the Indian ODI and T20 skipper.


It was a wonderful post from Mahi who is generally quite reserved by nature. But, a baby girl is all you need to turn a dad into one serious entertainer.

Dhoni, who relieved himself from the burden for Test cricket, now has to make himself available for limited overs games only. This allows him to spend more time in his hometown with his family. The fitness freak utilises most of his free time in the gym, sweating it out to keep himself fit for the limited overs action.

MS Dhoni clearly stated his intentions last month after the completion of the third ODI against Zimbabwe. When asked about the long break which followed post the conclusion of the tour, Dhoni said he will spend time with his daughter.

“I think after a long time, I will take some time off cricket after this series (T20Is). Don’t think my daughter (15-month old Ziva) still recognises me. I will make my daughter feel that I am her dad and spent time with family,” the skipper said with his tongue firmly in cheek. Dhoni will be next seen in October during the limited-overs leg of the series against New Zealand at home.
