Don't think my daughter recognises me; will spend more time with her after Zimbabwe tour: MS Dhoni

Harare: No one can deny that Mahendra Singh Dhoni has a sense of humour and one got a taste of it at the post-match presentation after the completion of the third ODI when he was asked about the long-forced break that he will have post this ongoing series.

Dhoni will be next seen in October during the limited overs leg of the series against New Zealand.

"I think after a long time, I will take some time off cricket after this series (T20Is). Don't think my daughter (15-month old Ziva) still recognizes me. I will make my daughter feel that I am her dad and spent time with family," the skipper said with his tongue firmly in cheek.

On a serious note, he was satisfied with the effort put in by the bowlers, who dismissed Zimbabwe in all the three ODIs — 168 (49.5 overs), 126 (34.3 overs) and 123 (42.2 overs) respectively — and then chased down the total with consummate ease.

"I think the execution has been really good, and that's the key factor. The fast bowlers and the spinners have taken wickets at some point of time and put pressure on the opposition, so I am happy with the bowling performance," Dhoni said after the match.

"I don't mind winning games easily, that's what you are supposed to do. It would have been nice if a few of the other batsmen would have had a break."
