Former India cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and tennis legend Leander Paes were spotted in Mumbai enjoying a session of football together.

 

Rhiti Sports, the firm which manages Dhoni, posted pictures of the duo along with other players on Facebook on Monday.

"Captain Cool: MS Dhoni with Indian tennis player Leander Paes in Mumbai for Charity Football Match," it said.

Dhoni and Paes were pictured wearing practice jerseys with ‘Playing for Humanity’ inscribed on them. The cause of the charity and date of the match though is unclear.

There is lot of speculation regarding the wicketkeeper-batsman's possible retirement after he made himself unavailable for the series against the West Indies and South Africa.

After returning from the World Cup, the 38-year-old spent a chunk of the break time serving in the Territorial Army, where he is an honorary lieutenant colonel.
