Legendary Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni graced the stage at a promotional event yesterday. The iconic cricketer gave us a hint of his footballing abilities on stage, in an event which was not related to cricket but football. Mahendra Singh Dhoni is no stranger to the game of football with the sport being one of his favorites alongside his love for bikes, pets and the army.

The main story:

MS Dhoni has been a goalkeeper in his younger days and is also the owner of Indian Super League Club Chennayin FC. The inventor of the helicopter shot managed to pull off a beautiful trick with the football without even wearing football shoes. Dhoni chipped the ball perfectly into his hands as it was rolled towards him in what was a picture perfect moment. The 36-year-old took to his official Instagram account to share the video.

Captioning the post, Dhoni wrote “Sometimes it just happens by accident, wrong shoes wrong surface but a perfect take with lots of drama,”. Dhoni was also seen wearing the T-shirt of his favorite football club, Manchester United.

The aging batsman had a major role to play in the limited overs series against Sri Lanka. The selectors were keeping a close eye on him during the series and Dhoni lived up to the expectations. After a complete whitewash of the Lions, the Indians are set to lock horns with the Australians, which is expected to be a much tougher hurdle. Mahendra Singh Dhoni will again be a crucial factor as Virat Kohli and his men look to steal the top spot in ODIs.

A 4-1 win against the Aussies will take India to the number one position in the 50 overs format. Quite interestingly, the Aussies also require a 4-1 victory in the series to gain the number spot in the rankings. Both India and Australia are on 117 points at third and second place respectively.
