If you ever need proof that sportsmen too need some downtime, then look no further than cricketing genius MS Dhoni.
During the third one-day international between India and Sri Lanka, Dhoni was seen on screen taking a power nap on the field. He needed time to recharge.
According to an Indian Express report, Dhoni was caught taking a power nap after the play was intermittently stopped due to an untoward incident of crowd trouble. The report said that bottles were thrown on the field by angry Sri Lankan fans who were baffled by their home team's performance.
Deciding to make the most of the situation, Dhoni lay down on the field and took a power nap. Fifteen minutes later, India chased down the runs. Rohit Sharma remained unbeaten on 124 while Dhoni was not out on 67.
