Rain puts brake on practice, Dhoni wields a pistol instead of bat

Rain puts brake on practice, Dhoni wields a pistol instead of bat”

After playing foot volleyball with his teammates during the team training session, India's World Cup-winning captain MS Dhoni headed to Kolkata Police Training School for a pistol shooting session.

According to the several media reports, Dhoni not only shot in the range but engaged the Kolkata Police recruits with a pep-talk during his visit in the afternoon.

Dhoni used the opportunity to brush up his skills - albeit this time with a gun. Bas fir kya, as soon as the news spread, the Facebook inbox of Kolkata Police started flooding with requests to put the video of the same. "His accuracy is breathtaking". And the sweet Police of the sweet city shared the video for all his fans!

Apart from sharpening his shooting skills, Dhoni also had an interaction with Kolkata police "trainee cadets" on Wednesday afternoon.

But the relentless showers could not keep MS Dhoni from enjoying a shooting stint with the Kolkata Police. "He's an extraordinary marksman and inspired us all", a Kolkata Police official who accompanied Dhoni is quoted as saying by PTI, "It's a state of art shooting range at PTS and Dhoni shot both in the 10m and 25 ranges".

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. India is now leading the five-match series by 1-0.

With rain interruptions predicted in the afternoon, Dhoni's game awareness will help captain Virat Kohli with crucial on-field decisions.
