MS Dhoni has been on a break from cricket ever since India's heartbreaking loss in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 at the hands of New Zealand back in July. He had then backed out from team selection for the West Indies tour as he wanted to serve the Indian Army. It has been reported that he will be back in action during the bilateral home series against West Indies in December. Meanwhile, it was also reported that Mahi would also be making his presence felt during the third and final Test between India and South Africa at his hometown in Ranchi and he did not disappoint his fans.
