MS Dhoni may currently be on a break from cricket, but the former India captain is still picking up valuable experience — as a father. Having retired from Test cricket, Mahi isn't part of the Indian team engaged in a three-match Test series in South Africa and is making the most out of his free time, spending time with family and getting acquainted with his daughter Ziva's friends.
Two-year-old Ziva has recently started school and Mahi was pictured attending his little princess's annual day function, where Ziva was playing — wait for it — a princess. Pictures of Ziva dressed in pink with her little tiara participating in a play soon went viral on social media.
Little Ziva even took time off her princess duties to introduce daddy to her friends and fellow princesses. Here, take a look.

Dhoni's ability to become the nucleus of any company he keeps is nothing new and seems the trait holds strong even with a bunch of 2-year-old-or-so princesses.

Once he's done charming the little princesses and after the current Test series ends, Mahi is expected to travel to South Africa to be a part of the ODI and T20I series.
