MS Dhoni playing a multiplayer online game with India teammates

Having failed to impress much with the willow in the recent past, former India captain and wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni has put his focus on a different sport and his fans are loving it. However, it's not a physical sport; here we are talking about 'PUBG', an online multiplayer game that is also known as PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

A recent tweet by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has suggested that the 2011 Cricket World Cup-winning captain is a big fan of 'PUBG' as he is seen playing the virtual game with his teammates at the Mumbai airport.

The BCCI tweeted: "As we wait for the departure announcement from Mumbai, some of them are playing a very popular multiplayer game. #TeamIndia. Any guesses?"

In Mumbai, India registered an emphatic 224-run win to take an unassalable 2-1 lead in the five-match ODI series against West Indies.

Earlier, Dhoni had said in a tweet: "Great weather and Pubg. This headset feels so comfortable, I could wear it all day. Check out @soundlogic.in's Voice Assistant Neckband Headset on @flipkart. Now available in MSD Limited Edition, autographed by me!"

Even though the BCCI didn't mention the name of the game, fans were quick to make judgments.

"Is this PUBG fever? Just look at MSD," a fan tweeted.

Talking about Dhoni's composed nature, another fan said: "I think this is the only field where he can lose his cool."

As pacer Jasprit Bumrah appeared not engaged in the multiplayer game, a fan said: "Bumrah looks as if he is above all these petty things."
