Virat Kohli and the rest of the Indian cricket team are in currently in Ranchi, Jharkhand for the third of five-match ODI series. This game is particularly important because of the fact that Team India is currently leading the series 2-0 and winning the next one, would ensure the series victory against their Aussie rivals.
Clearly, the stakes are high and there is a load of pressure on the shoulders of Team India to be done with the series as soon as possible. During such times of goading, it was but obvious that former captain MS Dhoni will do something to calm their nerves, as he does during the crucial final overs of a match.
Ranchi is Dhoni's hometown. This is where 'Captain Cool' grew up amongst his friends and family, where he went to school and where he developed his unorthodox ways of dominating the game of cricket. People have come to worship him and his contributions towards putting the town on a global map.
If we were living in ancient times, Dhoni would definitely be living as the city's most beloved king. It is therefore only suitable that his comrades enjoy a royal feast. While the humility in Dhoni led him to drive his chariot (read: Hummer H2) to the airport to pick up teammates Rishabh Pant and Kedar Jadhav himself, he also arranged for a massive dinner party for the entire roster at his Ranchi residence.March 7, 2019
In what looks and feels nothing short of a movie set for a regal dinner scene from the 'Lord of the Rings' or at Hogwarts, Dhoni's supper consisted of chandeliers, large candles, huge curtains and a beautiful starry night.
Every member of the Indian roster seems to have forgotten about the pressure of winning the next game, even if it was for a brief second, and it was a great moment indeed for the teammates to have shared together.View this post on Instagram
