Dhoni also participated in the puja with Vedic mantras and also broke a coconut along with former BCCI  secretary Amitabh Chowdhary.

Dhoni who has the experience of playing on all sorts of pitches across different parts of the world,  advised for the use of these types of soil for preparing these wickets so that cricketers could have better training facilities on sporting wickets rather than flat pitches.
