The wicketkeeper-batsman along with injured pace duo of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma and stand-by pacer Mohit Sharma has set off for the pleasure trip while a couple of other players have left for different cities to meet their relatives.
"Dhoni, Bhuvi, Ishant and Mohit have gone to an artificial 'Adventure Sport Park', which is around 150 kms from Adelaide. The particular 'Adventure Sport Park' has all facilities like trekking, fishing and boating. They will be there for two days and back in team hotel on February 5," a senior BCCI official told PTI today.
It was learnt that two other players, all-rounder Stuart Binny has left for Sydney to spend some time with his elder sister while Shikhar Dhawan has left for Melbourne to be with his wife and kids.
"The others relaxed at the hotel today. Some of them went out for shopping while a few others enjoyed a pool session and did some gym work," the official added.
After being ousted from the tri-series, Dhoni had stressed the need to "switch off" from the rigours of the game in order to come back fresh before the World Cup.
