Dhoni’s Twitter and Facebook posts include his pets. May be, that's because Sakshi too loves animals.

Mrs Dhoni also 'adopted' two female and one male street dog. She named the male "Sultan" and it was much appreciated among social networking fans.

Another fetish of Dhoni is his love for bikes. Two-wheeled demons strike a chord with him. He also owns a team -- Mahi Racing Team -- in the World Supersport Championship.

Now that he has break from the game, he spends time restoring his old bikies.

"I think my plan of action is to restore the 1st bike tht I bought for rs4500, will upload its pic maybe tomorrow.its in a very bad shape," he wrote.

"Tell me one business where home delivery of the product is cheaper compared to the price of the product when u go and pick it up," he asked his followers on Twitter.

"In Ranchi if the milkman delivers milk to ur house he charges 32 rs but if u go and pick it from his place he asks for 34 rs."
