Ranchi:

A day after his heroics on a cricket field, Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni displayed his footballing skills as he scored a goal during a friendly match on Friday.

Dhoni, who smashed a 19-ball 63 in his team Chennai Super Kings' win over Surisers Hyderabad in the Champions League Twenty20 yesterday, played a 35-minute friendly football match at former deputy chief minister Sudesh Mahto's assembly constituency, Silli, about 55 kms from Ranchi.

Dhoni, who clobbered five sixes in Thisara Perera's over at the JSCA stadium yesterday, teamed up with Mahto to play against a local soccer academy team at the Silli stadium.

Mahto said Dhoni's fans here now want him to go for six sixes in an over.

"Fans urged him to hit six sixes in one over. And Dhoni said intejar karna padega (have to wait)," AJSU president Mahto said quoting Dhoni.

Dhoni and Mahto scored a goal each as their team swept past their young rivals 4-1 in the friendly tie before a capacity crowd.
