MS Dhoni now a days has plenty of off time, thanks to his retirement from Test cricket. Although he has been significantly busy this season owing to a good amount of limited-overs action for Team India, the mild break before the series against visitors Sri Lanka has allowed the former skipper to spend some time with his family. Speaking of his family, it’s not just his wife Sakshi and daughter Ziva, but it also includes his Dutch Shepherd dog Zoya. As Dhoni is busy parenting his daughter, he also finds time to train his dog with tricks and hurdles, as he recently posted a video on Instagram of him training his dog.

Earlier this week, Dhoni launched his cricket academy. The wicketkeeper-batsman is currently in Dubai for the event, which is believed to have some of the best equipment and a special clinic for budding cricketers as well. The MS Dhoni Cricket Academy (MSDCA) will have some of the best coaches from India to train. The former Indian captain himself launched the academy in the presence of excited trainees, parents and other key stakeholders of the facility.
