MS Dhoni's love for bikes is well known by all his fans. Now, this was well documented and in a video posted by his wife Sakshi, the former India captain can be seen taking his daughter Ziva on a bike ride in his residential compound. The video was tweeted on Tuesday by Dhoni's IPL team Chennai Super Kings.

"When 'crazy lightning' and 'happiness' are rolled into one!" they tweeted along with the video. While most cricket stars have been active on social media during the ongoing freeze in the cricket calendar due to the coronavirus pandemic, Dhoni has largely stayed away from the limelight. He has surfaced only in videos posted by Sakshi on her Instagram handle.

Sakshi astonished about Dhoni's retirement rumours
"He is low profile. During the lockdown he had no presence on the social media. I don't know where these things come from. I just don't know," Sakshi said during an Instagram Live hosted by Chennai Super Kings. "See if you have to be prepared for these things when you have social media exposure... People have their opinions. Two days ago when that Dhoni 'retires' was trending, the message was put out... Whenever anything happens, I start getting calls and messages." The speculation further gained steam with uncertainty surrounding this year's IPL in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic as it is believed that Dhoni is eyeing a return to the Indian team through the cash-rich T20 league. "We of course miss CSK, still wondering whether IPL going to happen or not. My daughter also asking 'when it will happen?' Let's see..."

Meanwhile, MS Dhoni has been away from cricket for over a year. He last played for India during the World Cup 2019 semifinal loss to New Zealand and since there has been constant speculation pertaining to his future as he did not find a place in the BCCI's centrally contracted players list.

Raina talks about Dhoni's fitness
India's all-rounder and Chennai Super Kings player Suresh Raina spoke about skipper MS Dhoni's preparations during Chennai Super Kings on Star Sports show Cricket Connected, “The best thing was, Rayudu, myself, Mahi bhai and Murali were batting in a group and Mahi bhai bats for long hours when he is in Chennai - for about 2-4 hours. But this time he was just not getting tired of batting. He was doing his gym in the morning, followed by batting for 3 hours in the evening.

Raina continued, "When you spend the day at the nets, from gym workouts to fielding workouts to batting then the next morning it leads to some stiffness in the body. We are that stage when the body has become a little slower and you have to put in the extra effort and work for 5 hours for a 3-hour training so that you can play a 4-hour match without getting tired."

MS Dhoni has been with CSK ever since IPL's inception in 2008. However, after CSK's 2-year ban, Dhoni was purchased by Rising Pune Supergiant before making a return to his team again.
