India’s performance in the test series against South Africa has not been as expected.
Instead of ‘mauka mauka’ to defeat the Proteas, the recent matches have become more of an excuse to laugh at captain Virat Kohli’s abusing and Cheteshwar Pujara’s 0 off 50! Now you know how cricket fans turn into ‘experts’ during such times and want to offer their advice to our Men in Blue on how to improve their game? Well, M S Dhoni just met with two such ‘experts’, all thanks to Jonty Rhodes!
In 2013, the former South African cricketer was appointed South Africa’s official brand ambassador to India. Two years later, his wife Melanie gave birth to their daughter in Mumbai and they even named her ‘India’!
Baby India has enjoyed much love from the land of her birth, including a sweet birthday message from PM Modi himself!
And now, baby India and her equally cute brother Nathan, seem to have followed in Papa Jonty’s footsteps when it comes to ‘coaching’ Indian cricket players!
There are always feelings of concern when family leaves after 2 incredible months together, but I need not have feared; as they were in safe hands @msdhoni getting some advice from India and Nathan Jon on how to play in SA – he told them “mujhe pata hai” #SAvIND dhanyavaad Mahi pic.twitter.com/8wurojjCF3

This morning, Jonty shared an adorable picture of his two kids, daughter Indian and son Nathan, with Dhoni! And what were they doing? Well, according to Jonty’s caption, the kids were giving some ‘advice’ to Uncle Dhoni for his next match against South Africa!
The picture, which appears to be taken during a flight, has Dhoni holding little Nathan in his arms, with cute India sitting next to them, looking slyly into the camera!
