Dhoni, who was paired with a local tennis player Sumit Kumar, went on to win the match in straight sets, 6-3, 6-3, despite initially losing the toss. The former Indian captain’s love for football has been documented before, and he seemed to be a natural with the racquet in his hand as well.
The tournament, organized by the trainers at the JSCA academy was an open tournament where over 50 players from Dhanbad, Jamshedpur and Ranchi took part.
Dhoni will next be seen in action in the ODI series against Australia, which starts on 12th January.
