MS Dhoni dons his footballing boots ahead of series against Australia


Days ahead of the home series vs Australia, India wicketkeeper MS Dhoni was seen donning his footballing shoes as he participated in a charity game in Juhu. 

India batsman-wicketkeeper MS Dhoni, who used to play as a goalkeeper in his school days, hasn’t dropped the liking for the sport ever since. Even though his path changed in the course of years, the 37-year old is still spotted on a regular basis at football events now-and-then. On Monday, Dhoni was seen playing a charity football match in Juhu.

Dhoni was all smiles in the photographs of the charity event shared on social media as he wore his football boots in front of a large crowd gathered to watch the celebrity cricketer. Bollywood celebrities including Dino Morea, Aparshakti Khurana, actor-model Marc Robinson were also present at the venue in Juhu.

Dhoni has been included in the limited-overs series against Australia for two T20Is and five ODIs as the Men in Blue continue their preparations for the upcoming 2019 World Cup.

Chief selector MSK Prasad, in a recent interview, called Dhoni ‘the most important guy for India’ in context of the ICC World Cup 2019. “Undoubtedly. He is going to be the most important guy for India in the World Cup: be it in his advisory role to Virat, be it with his wicketkeeping, be it with is on-field mentoring of young players,” he said.
