Ranchi, Jan 19: Ranchi's favourite son MS Dhoni did not disappoint his home crowd on Friday night. He showed them what else he could do for them apart from wielding the willow, keeping wickets and leading the Indian side.

Dhoni swapped his bat for a 'dhol' and readily joined 179 others to become a drummer at the inauguration of the JSCA International Stadium on Friday (January 18).

Not only did he become a drummer but also did a jig. The drum was offered to Dhoni by troupe leader Nandlal Nayak and the homeboy obliged. The other drummers were dressed in warrior style and Dhoni, clad in blue denims and white jacket, stole the show during the hour-long inauguration ceremony. Indian players too were present.

India and England face off in the third ODI on Saturday.

Here are the images from the inauguration.
