Watch: MS Dhoni visits Team India dressing room in Ranchi ahead of 1st T20I against NZ | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni gave Team India players a pleasant surprise on Friday as he visited the team’s dressing room ahead of the first T20I against New Zealand in Ranchi.
Dhoni was seen first having a chat with T20 skipper Hardik Pandya and then with young wicketkeeper-batter Ishan Kishan. The former captain is also seen interacting with opener Shubman Gill, spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, Washington Sundar as well as the support staff.

“Look who came visiting at training today in Ranchi – the great @msdhoni,” BCCI posted a short video on Twitter.

After a 3-0 series sweep against NZ in ODIs, India will hope to continue their good form in the shortest format with Ishan Kishan and Shubman Gill set to open in the first game.
Gill has only played three T20Is — the youngster made his debut against Sri Lanka — and will open with Kishan following his superb performance in the ODI series.
The 23-year-old scored a double-ton as well as a century as India took the ODI series 3-0. This will be India’s first T20 outing after they defeated Sri Lanka 2-1 earlier this month.
