After comprehensively beating the Australians in the ODI series, India will now take on New Zealand in three ODIs and three T20s.
Ahead of the first ODI in Mumbai, team India were having their practice session in which MS Dhoni decided to do something different. In 2011, Dhoni famously hit a six to win the World Cup for India, something that will forever remain in Indian cricketing folklore.

Back at the ground where he had that magical moment, Dhoni decided to recreate that shot by hitting a six in the same direction.

Mahi showed that he still had it as he powered the ball into the stands, invariably taking us back to that magical night six years ago.
The last couple of series against Sri Lanka and Australia have been really good for Dhoni, as he answered his critics in style. A feature of Dhoni’s career has been his ability to bounce back from disappointment, which is something that has again come to the fore.
Now no one is questioning his value to the side, as Dhoni and Kohli have formed a wonderful partnership that is proving to be invaluable for the Indian side. Kohli is still a young captain, and he can still learn loads from one of the greatest cricketing minds to have played the game.
His superstar status has not waned though, as Dhoni is evoking Sachin like receptions whenever he comes out to bat these days. A hero and an icon for an entire generation of Indians, Dhoni’s eventual farewell will be a hugely emotional moment for Indian cricket.
But it ain’t that time yet!
