Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s eye for detail is well documented and no wonder the former captain did a have a look at the Eden Gardens strip for the first India vs Sri Lanka Test despite the fact he no longer plays the five- day format.

Dhoni was in the city for a commercial shoot with another former skipper Kapil Dev.

In the morning session, the retired Test cricketer Dhoni was seen talking to curator Sujan Mukherrjee, checking the Eden Gardens strip that will host Virat Kohli and Co in their first Test against Sri Lanka from November 16-20.

“Dhoni really appreciated the pitch preparation and wished us for the Test match,” Mukherjee later said.

Dhoni and Kapil spent the whole day bowling and batting as per the shooting requirements.
