New Delhi: MS Dhoni on Friday proved yet again why he is considered a thorough gentleman in cricketing circles.

The skipper may be severe on opposition bowlers on the pitch, but off it Mahi is shy and soft spoken. 

January 29 was a historic day in Indian cricket, as both the men's and women's teams completed T20I series wins over the mighty Aussies.

The Indian women cricket clinched their maiden Twenty20 series win over three-time world champion Australia with a comprehensive 10-wicket triumph in the rain-truncated second game, in Melbourne.

Dhoni's boys did the same few hours later, as his side won the 2nd T20 by 27-runs to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.

Post the match, Dhoni met Mithali Raj's team and posed for a picture with them.

The BCCI posted the lovely photo of them through its official account (Indian Cricket Team) on social networking site Facebook.

Earlier, women's team skipper said it was hard to believe that her team had beaten the world champions on their home soil. Raj even told Jhulan Goswami to pinch her just so that she knew it was real.
