Indian wicketkeeper batter Rishabh Pant was in a mood to treat his fans as he hosted an Insta Live on Wednesday. Having reached Trinidad for the five T20Is, and with the first game still distant, Pant, Suryakumar Yadav, and Rohit Sharma came together for a live session. While Pant was surprising his fans by randomly adding them in the live video, he surprised a billion of them at once when MS Dhoni appeared on the screen.
In between the session, MS Dhoni’s face suddenly popped up on the screen sending fans into jubilation. The former Indian captain who is rarely active on social media also waved to Pant, Sharma, and Surya and when Rishabh asked him to stay for a while, Dhoni just flipped the phone and vanished. But this small appearance was enough for his fans as they went crazy on social media.
The short video of Dhoni making a surprise appearance in Pant’s live session went viral on social media.

Ishant Sharma joins too
Other than Dhoni, India pacer Ishant Sharma also joined Pant and others in the live session for a while. Sharma was seen lying casually in his bed. He left a few comments for Axar Patel (who was getting a message in Suryakumar’s background) as Sharma said “Isko ache se message dena kandhe wandhe me”.
Notably, Rishabh Pant and Rohit Sharma are currently in the West Indies for a five-match T20I series that starts 29 July. The first match will be played in Trinidad and then the caravan will move to St Kitts for the next two T20Is. The final two matches will be played in Lauderhill, Florida. India have announced an 18-member squad for the five games. KL Rahul and Kuldeep Yadav’s availability is subject to fitness.
India Squad: Rohit Sharma (Captain), Ishan Kishan, KL Rahul*, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer, Dinesh Karthik, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, R Ashwin, Ravi Bishnoi, Kuldeep Yadav*, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh.
