New Delhi: Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the only senior Indian cricketer with the touring side to Zimbabwe.
Having retired from Test cricket, Mahi seized the opportunity to play some international cricket in this low key series.
For the youngsters this tour is not just about impressing the selectors but also a chance to learn the tricks of the trade from their skipper.
Dhoni is doing his bit to build team spirit and foster strong bonds in the next generation of Indian cricketers.
On one occasion, the 34-year-old joined his teammates for a meal as well.
It was a lovely sight, seeing Dhoni and superstar Indian cricketers sit in their hotel room floor and share a meal.

There is a huge amount of scrutiny on the lives of Indian cricketers.
Playing cricket outside the country often gives them a chance to do some of the things they cannot in India.
