Dhoni, who was last seen in a 2019 World Cup semi-final contest against New Zealand, come back to his second home. The wicket-keeper batsman has started practicing in the nets at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
The 38-year-old has shown his vintage ‘avatar’ during the training session. A video of which is getting viral on social media. Star Sports Tamil uploaded a video of Dhoni’s training on Twitter, in which the power-striker can be seen smashing the balls for maximums.
In the video, Dhoni can be seen hitting not one, not two, but five consecutive sixes. However, it remains unclear whether Dhoni is hitting the shots against a bowler or a ball-machine. But one thing which is clear as a blue sky is Dhoni’s old school form.
