Mahendra Singh Dhoni certainly knows a thing or two about how to make the most of time. Just a few days ago, he caused quite a stir across social media when he took a nap on the ground while the game was stopped due to a fan unrest during an ODI against Sri Lanka. Recently, he was pictured taking a nap o the floor of Chennai airport too while waiting for the flight.

Well, the former India captain has once again showed that when it comes to make full use of a break, he is far ahead of the lot. With rain not allowing Indian and Australian players to train ahead of the crucial second One-Day Internationals, Dhoni visited the Kolkata Police Training school for a pistol shooting session on Wednesday (September 20). The Kolkata Police posted a video on its Facebook page, showing Dhoni doing some shooting practise.
“The great MS Dhoni takes some time off to practice his shooting skills at our state of the art shooting range this afternoon at Police Training School. His accuracy is breathtaking,” Kolkata Police wrote on Facebook.
As per reports in PTI, a top Kolkata police official revealed that the World Cup-winning skipper not only did some shooting practise but also delivered a pep talk for the Kolkata Police recruits.
“It’s great to host Dhoni for the second time. He’s an extraordinary marksman and inspired us all,” a Kolkata Police official who accompanied Dhoni is quoted as saying by PTI. “It’s a state of art shooting range at PTS and Dhoni shot both in the 10m and 25 ranges.”
On the other hand, Dhoni’s teammates along with him had some fun with a football on the sidelines of the Eden Gardens which was fully covered due to rain.
