Dhoni, who smashed a 19-ball 63 in his team Chennai Super Kings' win over Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Champions League Twenty20 on Thursday, played a 35-minute friendly football match at former deputy chief minister Sudesh Mahto's Assembly constituency, Silli, located about 55 km away from Ranchi.
     
Dhoni, who clobbered five sixes in Thisara Perera's over at the JSCA stadium, teamed up with Mahto to play against a local soccer academy team at the Silli stadium.
     
Mahto said Dhoni's fans here now want him to go for six sixes in an over.
     
"Fans urged him to hit six sixes in one over. And Dhoni said intejar karna padega (have to wait)," AJSU president Mahto said quoting Dhoni.
     
Dhoni and Mahto scored a goal each as their team swept past their young rivals 4-1 in the friendly tie before a capacity crowd.
