After the home T20I series against South Africa, Team India’s focus next international assignment starts on June 26 when they take on Ireland in the first of the two T20Is. So far the two teams have come against each other on three occasions and on each of those instances, it is the Men in Blue who have emerged victorious.

With the kind of exposure that the Indian players enjoy and the amount of cricket that they play, they have always hold the edge over the Irish side. This has meant that the Indian team has used games against Ireland as an opportunity to try something new. While they have a new captain in Hardik Pandya along with three uncapped players in their squad, a similar experiment was done during India’s series against Ireland in 2018 when MS Dhoni was rested for a game and Dinesh Karthik was tried behind the wickets.

However, with the legend that Dhoni is, the Chennai Super Kings captain still managed to make his presence felt in the game. Dhoni was seen serving drinks to the team during a drinks break and visuals of that incident have resurfaced online ahead of IND vs IRE 1st T20I in Dublin on Sunday.

Check out images of Dhoni serving drinks here:
