Watch: MS Dhoni and daughter Ziva catch the Snapchat bug in adorable videos

MS Dhoni is clearly making the most of the break he has earned at present, spending quality time with his family back home, especially daughter Ziva, as a video uploaded by the Indian limited-overs skipper would suggest.

Dhoni, who is currently enjoying a vacation following the conclusion of the Zimbabwe tour, posted an adorable video of himself with his one-and-a-half-year-old daughter, using Snapchat filters and making cute faces. Dhoni's wife, Sakshi also posted a video of the duo fooling around.

This is not the first time the father-daughter pair created a buzz on the social media. Earlier this month, Dhoni posted an adorable photo of him sporting a suspiciously artificial beard, holding Ziva in his arm.

The 2011 World Cup-winning captain led his side to wins in the One-Day International (ODI) and Twenty20 International (T20I) series' in the tour of Zimbabwe. The Indian team is currently in West Indies for a four-Test series, where they have gained a 1-0 lead with an innings win in the first Test.

During the Zimbabwe tour, Dhoni jokingly said during the post-match presentation ceremony after one of the games, that Ziva would not be able to recognise him, highlighting the lack of interaction between him and his daughter due to the former's packed schedule.

Dhoni, who overtook Sourav Ganguly to become the most successful Indian captain of all time, will next be seen in action during New Zealand's tour of India in October, which will feature five one-dayers after the three-Test series.

Dhoni, who made his debut in 2004 during the tour of Bangladesh, is currently the fifth-most successful Test wicketkeeper of all time with 294 dismissals, as well as the fourth-best in ODIs with 350 scalps. He retired from Tests mid-way during the 2014-15 tour of Australia, finishing with 4,876 runs from 90 appearances.
