Every time she comes to the game she keeps asking me why ‘Mahi bhai’ keeps the helmet behind him while keeping and why we can’t play cricket on one side and need to change sides. It’s cute,” said Raina.

“Actually she is more into soccer and a big fan of Messi and for us Mahi Bhai is Messi,” he added.

While speaking on Instagram live with Sports Tak, the 33-year-old had put faith in Dhoni's return to the Indian cricket team.

I was joined by [Ambati] Rayudu, [Murali] Vijay, and all in the fitness camp. Then Mahi bhai joined us,” Raina said. “If you ask me I think he was striking the ball pretty well and the bat flow seemed quite good. He never looked better.”

"He still has a lot of cricket left in him. It would be best if he answers this question with his bat.”
