With heavy rains in Kolkata prohibiting any practice for either team prior to the Second ODI in Eden Gardens, Kolkata, India’s talismanic wicketkeeper-batsman decided to accept the offer from one of the army officers from Kolkata Fort Williams at the dinner table. The invitees of MS Dhoni pointed out his adept in rifle shooting similar to his helicopter shots.
After refuting the comments made from his friends initially, MSD finally gave in to the offer and decided to visit a shooting range in for practice. With the torrential rains in Kolkata, Dhoni decided to go to the military rifle shooting range in central Kolkata along with his Army officer friend.
However, it soon turned to be an anticlimax for the former skipper as he could not get an opportunity to try his hands out at shooting. Due to the cloudy weather, Dhoni opted to cancel his shooting program.
Dhoni is a renowned Bike enthusiast
“I missed shooting chances. I thought the sky will be clear and I will have the sunshine in the shooting range,” claimed MS Dhoni while talking to his friend, according to MyKhel. That said, Mahi did not let the gloom seep in as he found an alternate pastime in finding out about racing bikes in Kolkata.
“Mahi was very eager to practice shooting. But as it did not click he wanted to fulfill his second wish by riding racing bikes,” claimed one of the close associates of Dhoni under the condition of anonymity. It has been told that Dhoni got traced out the location and also got to ride the bikes he wished for.
While Dhoni spends time off the field trying to entertain himself, players from the opposite teams and busy trying to chalk out strategies to dismiss the best finishers of cricket. “We need Dhoni’s wicket badly. He has been now the crunch man in the Indian team,” claimed Adam Zampa.
