MS Dhoni Shows Off Kabaddi Skills in Mumbai

MS Dhoni can usually be seen hitting bowlers all round the park, but the former World Cup-winning India captain will be seen trying his hand at kabaddi in a promotional campaign.

The video opens with a usually calm and composed Dhoni going for an intensely pressure do-or-die raid, amidst cheering fans. He showcases some key kabaddi moves, including the famous feint that is then followed by a leap to compete a super raid.

Dhoni is currently being rested from the T20I squad but he has received the backing of captain Virat Kohli, who said that the 36-year-old remains an integral part of the team.

"I think the selectors have already addressed this if I'm not wrong. And he's been spoken to, firstly... So, I don't see any reason why I should be sitting here and explaining that. I think the selectors have come out and explained exactly what happened," said Kohli at the post-match press conference after guiding India to another series win at home.

"I was not part of that conversation so.. It is what the selectors explained. I think people are putting too much variables into the situation, which is not the case I can assure you of that. He's still a very integral part of this team and he just feels that in the T20 format, someone like Rishabh can get more chances," said Kohli, when asked about Dhoni's omission from the T20I series against West Indies and Australia.

The Pro Kabaddi League is currently in its sixth season.
