Ranchi:

India's limited overs captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni returned home to a rousing welcome on Friday after winning the cricket tri-series in Australia.

Sporting a black top and jeans, Dhoni waved to his fans at the Birsa Munda airport, where he was greeted with tribal songs and dances amid Z-grade security.

"We are happy that Dhoni is back among us after a long tour. He will have his favourite home-made dishes, particularly milk items he is fond of," Dhoni's cousin Prem Chandra told the media.

Sports Minister Bandhu Tirkey said, "We will honour Dhoni on March 16, the last day of a tribal festival at the historic Mohrabadi Ground. The government, however, has not yet decided on what gift Dhoni should be given."
