Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been setting fitness standards for a while now. Dhoni might not be posting his shirtless selfies like Yuvraj but there is no denying that he is as fit as one can get at the age of 36. Dhoni proved his mettle yet again ahead of India vs Sri Lanka 2nd ODI in Mohali, not in the Yo-Yo fitness test, but in a 100-metre dash defeating the 24-year-old Hardik Pandya. You read that right!
Dhoni and Pandya engaged in a sprint challenge on the morning of December 13. Initially, it was Pandya who took the lead in the race but Dhoni accelerated his pace in a flash and beat the all-rounder in the end.
Here’s the video of the race:

In the first ODI, Dhoni saved India from devastating humiliation by scoring much-needed innings of 65 runs from 87 balls. He scored more than 50 percent of India’s innings. While Pandya got out after scoring just 10 runs at Dharamshala.
Team India will be looking to make a comeback in the second ODI and keep the three-match series alive.
