Video Of The Day! MS Dhoni Strengthens His Bond With 'Zoya' In Rigorous Training



After decimating the Kiwis in both ODI and T20I series, the Indian cricket team is now gearing up for familiar foes Sri Lanka in a three-match Test series. Shifting focus to the longest format, while Virat Kohli readies his battalion to repeat their success, the Lankans will undoubtedly be looking to avenge their shambolic loss incurred earlier this year.

With the first Test slated to begin on 16 November, the Indian cricketers were seen sweating it out in the gruelling net sessions. But, while his teammates were busy honing their skills, MS Dhoni - who has retired from the longest version of the game - was seen putting his dogs through rigorous training (probably for a clash of their own, just kidding).

Dhoni's love for dogs and pets is no longer a secret. We've seen the former Indian captain alongside his canine compatriots many times. Whether it's a selfie with his dogs or playing the mirror game with his pet 'Sam', the Jharkhand cricketer seems to have mastered the art of handling pets.

However, a recent video which has been doing the rounds on the social media, Dhoni has upped the ante as a pet owner after he showcased his skills of controlling his pets during a training routine at his Ranchi farmhouse.

In the video shared on Instagram, Dhoni is seen taking his dogs through an obstacle course. Holding 'Zoya' (the Dutch Shepherd) with a leash, the 36-year-old takes her through the first hurdle where she eases through the ring. The latter half of the video shows the hurdles getting higher before 'Zoya' comes out on top after going past the final obstacle.

While the Dutch Shepherd was going through the routine, Dhoni's other pet - Lily (a Husky) - was also seen cheering from the sidelines. “ZOYA (Dutch Shepherd) does some training and LILY(husky) does the cheering job," Dhoni captioned the Instagram video.

The video has turned out to be a huge hit amongst the Dhoni fans on social media. At the time of writing this article, it had garnered 1,303,480 views on Instagram with comments also pouring in from pet lovers.

While Dhoni remains the subject of immense criticism for his slump in the batting department, he seems to have forged new friendship with his canines. More importantly, the recent video can also inspire Team India coach Ravi Shastri - who is widely regarded as Kohli's puppet - to flourish in his role on the back of trust and great rapport with the players, something Dhoni has managed to accomplish with his canine friends to get unbelievable results.
