Dhoni, known to be an adventure-sport enthusiast, was the Chief Guest in a match between teams of North and South Kashmir at Kunzer Cricket Ground.

During his visit to Jammu and Kashmir, Dhoni also spoke on the bilateral series between India and Pakistan.

"Government is the best judge to take a call on India-Pakistan series. Only they can decide whether we play Pakistan in the future or not. When it comes to India-Pakistan cricket, it is not just sports, but becomes much bigger than that. It is not a simple decision, but a diplomatic and a political decision.

"If the government decides, we will go and play and if they decide against it, we will play some other series," Dhoni further added.

Dhoni has now come back to New Delhi to join the Indian squad for the ODI and T20I matches against Sri Lanka starting December 10.

The Virat Kohli-led team will face Sri Lanka in the third and final Test at Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi starting on Saturday. India lead the 3-match Test series 1-0.
