Former Indian skipper, MS Dhoni is currently having a sabbatical from cricket since July 2019, but he continues to be one of the most talked-about players in the international circuit. On Wednesday, Dhoni shared an over 4-minute long video on Instagram where he can be seen “experiencing first snowfall of 2020” in Mussoorie — popularly known as “Queen of the hills”.
The video, shot in the -3 degrees temperature, shows the veteran wicket-keeper enjoying the snowfall with his family members, including daughter Ziva and wife Sakshi. The video shows MS Dhoni and Ziva playing with the snow-balls by throwing it on each other.
Captioning the video post on Instagram, MS wrote: “-3 degrees. Waking up to flurries descending ………experiencing first snowfall of 2020 in “Queen of the hills” an amazing experience #rockvilla”.
On Sunday, Dhoni had shared an adorable video of Ziva playing guitar and singing a song. “Snow brings the best out of her”, Dhoni had captioned the video.
The veteran wicketkeeper-batsman is on a sabbatical from cricket since India’s World Cup exit on July 9, 2019, and missed bilateral series against, West Indies, South Africa, and Bangladesh. He was not included in the squads for the T20I series against Sri Lanka and the ODI series against Australia.
In his absence, Team India has entrusted their faith in young Rishabh Pant to fill in his shoes, especially in the limited-overs formats but it hasn’t worked out pretty well as he has blown hot and cold so far. Dhoni will be seen back in cricketing action in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 where he leads the three-time champions Chennai Super Kings.
Some experts believe that Dhoni’s future with Team India will largely depend on how he fares in the IPL, which as per some reports is scheduled to start on March 29 and continue till May 24.
