MS Dhoni’s hometown Ranchi will be hosting the third One-day International (ODI) of the ongoing five-match series between India and Australia on Friday. As the Indian team arrived in the land of Dhoni, the former captain took over the driver duties for his teammates.

In a video posted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Instagram, MS Dhoni was captured getting ready to drive some of his teammates in one of his many cars as soon as they stepped out of the airport upon arrival in Ranchi.

Later in the day, MS Dhoni and his wife Sakshi hosted the members of Team India for dinner at their swanky farmhouse in Jharkhand’s capital city.

Yuzvendra Chahal took to Twitter and posted a picture from the fancy dinner. “Thank you for last night @msdhoni bhai and @SaakshiSRawat bhabhi,” read the caption.

During the first ODI of the series in Hyderabad, Dhoni became only the fourth Indian batsman to score over 13,000 runs in List A cricket.

He joined an elite club, which comprises of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid.
