While most players would have spent this time relaxing, former Indian captain MS Dhoni had different ideas. Yes, MS Dhoni utilized his time practicing his shooting skills at a Police Training School and, according to the Kolkata Police, Mahendra Singh Dhoni has breathtaking accuracy while shooting. The Kolkata police later uploaded a video on its Facebook account in which Dhoni can be seen shooting at the target.
A top Kolkata police official said Dhoni not only shot in the range but inspired the Kolkata Police recruits with a pep-talk during his visit in the afternoon.
The former India captain, who is also an honorary lieutenant colonel, visited the Kolkata Police Training School and tried his hand at pistol shooting (10m and 25m) at the shooting range.
On personal front, it has been a good beginning to the series for Dhoni, and these off-field "refreshments" could actually do him a piece of good ahead of the second ODI on Thursday.
