MS checks in
A notable absentee for the duration of the Test, former India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni finally showed up after India wrapped up the Test series, posing with Ravi Shastri among others.
Ranchi’s most popular son was expected to turn up during the third Test, and he did, but only after the formalities had been completed by Virat Kohli and his men here.
“Great to see a true Indian legend in his den after a fantastic series win #Dhoni #TeamIndia #INDvsSA,” Shastri tweeted with a picture of him with a grinning Dhoni.
In fact, when a scribe asked about Dhoni, a beaming skipper Kohli said in jest: “He is here in the change room. Come and say hello to him.”
The BCCI also posted a picture of Dhoni, wearing his all-access accreditation card, in the Indian dressing room.
In the picture posted by the Indian board, Dhoni is seen in conversation with debutant left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem, who took four wickets.
