India wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni hosted the entire Indian team over dinner at his residence in Ranchi on Wednesday ahead of the third ODI against Australia scheduled on Friday. Dhoni was accompanied by his wife Sakshi and the cricketers were in casual outfits and had a great time enjoying the company. India are leading the five-match series against the Kangaroos 2-0 and will look to deliver the killer punch in the veteran’s home town to clinch the series and humble the visitors in yet another series.
The cricketers were bowled over by the Dhonis’ hospitality and they thanked the hosts later with pictures that they posted on their social media accounts. Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal posted a picture of the entire squad and thanked MSD and Sakshi while captain Virat Kohli shared a photograph of a few and termed it as a “perfect team evening”.
The other of the Kul-Cha pair, Kuldeep Yadav, also chipped in sharing the selfie that was taken by Kohli featuring besides himself, Chahal, Dhoni and Rishabh Pant. He posted it on Twitter and thanked the hosts and said it was an absolute treat to bond with the boys and appreciated the food served.

Kuldeep is having a decent ODI series
Kuldeep Yadav, the chinaman bowler, has been doing well in the series and has taken five wickets in the first two ODIs. Former India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar felt that the left-arm spinner deserved to be in the headlines for the role he played in both games but it was the batsmen who stole the show on both occasions.
India won the first match in Hyderabad by six wickets after MS Dhoni’s undefeated 141-run partnership with Kedar Jadhav saw India turning the tables on the Aussies. In the second game in Nagpur, India were in a spot in batting again and this time, it was Kohli’s century and Vijay Shankar’s brisk 46 and some brilliant death bowling by the bowlers that gave them a narrow win by eight runs.
