Ranchi Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has hit sixes with his bat on the cricket field. However, they are doing their best even outside the cricket field. After cricket, he is also doing good work in animal husbandry.
In a program organized at Birsa Agricultural University, he has been awarded the title of the best cow keeper for his outstanding work and contribution in the field of animal husbandry in Eastern India.
