MS Dhoni’s daughter Ziva on Tuesday revealed her parents saved an injured bird that was ‘lying unconscious’ at their Ranchi residence. She took to her Instagram profile to reveal the heartwarming incident.
Ziva narrated how she had stumbled upon the injured bird on the lawn before informing her father. MS Dhoni and Sakshi then took care of the small bird, helping it to fly again.
Ziva said she spotted a Coppersmith ‘lying unconscious’ and that MS Dhoni fed the bird with water. She posted a number of photos of the former India skipper holding the bird. She also said she wanted the bird to stay but it flew away after recovering.
“Today in the evening on my lawn I saw a bird lying unconscious. I shouted for papa and mumma. Papa held the bird in his hand and made her have some water. After some time it opened its eyes. All of us were very happy,” Ziva wrote as caption.
“We placed her in a basket on top of some leaves. Mumma told me it is Crimson-breasted Barbet and is also called Coppersmith.
“What a pretty, pretty little bird. Then suddenly it flew off. I wanted it to stay, but mumma told me she had gone to her mom. I am sure I will see her again!,” she added.
Meanwhile, MS Dhoni is having a busy time at his home during the lockdown. The legendary cricketer, who has not played a competitive game since 2019 World Cup semifinal, was set to return to action during this year’s IPL before it was suspended indefinitely in the light of the pandemic.
In the meantime, he has been driving tractors as well as taking Ziva on indoor bike rides. His wife recently revealed that the veteran wicketkeeper-batsman is playing PUBG a lot during the lockdown.
