Written By Daamini Sharma | Mumbai | Published:

As India heads out to seal the fate of 674 candidates across 51 constituency during the Phase 5 of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, World Cup-winning former Team India skipper MS Dhoni, along with wife Sakshi Dhoni, has casted his vote at a polling booth in Jawahar Vidya Mandir in Ranchi, Jharkhand.

Immediately after casting his vote, the ace cricketer took to Instagram and posted a video to urge the voters to 'use their power' this election. However, the video does not show MS Dhoni making the appeal but it's little Ziva who is urging the voters to vote just like her 'Mumma and pappa'. 

Ziva can be heard saying:

"Go and vote just like Mumma and Pappa did".
