Former India captain MS Dhoni’s mobile phones went missing during a hotel fire in New Delhi recently.

The Jharkhand and Bengal teams, who were playing in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, were staying at WelcomHotel when a fire broke out on Friday morning.

Dhoni is said to have left his phones in his room while evacuating. When he returned to his room, his phones were missing.

Following the incident, Dhoni filed a complaint with the Delhi Police on Saturday.

Earlier Sunday, Deputy Commissioner of Police Surender Kumar tweeted that the three mobile phones have been recovered.

Jharkhand, captained by Dhoni, were beaten by Bengal in the second semi-final of the Vijay Hazare Trophy on Saturday.

The former India skipper played an aggressive knock, scoring 70 from 62 deliveries, but his dismissal caused a batting collapse from which Jharkhand never recovered.

MS Dhoni’s 62-ball 70 wasn’t enough as his team Jharkhand lost to Bengal by 41 runs in the semi-finals of the Vijay Hazare Trophy at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium, New Delhi on Saturday.

The former India captain slammed four sixes during his knock, but his dismissal in the 44th over of the chase triggered a batting collapse from Jharkhand who lost their last six wickets for just 38 runs.

Left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha starred with the ball for Bengal, picking up five wickets – including the important scalp of Dhoni.

Earlier, after being put into bat, Bengal openers Shreevats Goswani and Abhimanyu Eswaran both notched up centuries as they put on a 198-run partnership for the first wicket.

Bengal skipper Manoj Tiwary then scored an unbeaten 75 from just 49 deliveries to push Bengal’s total to 329/4 in their 50 overs.

Bengal will now meet Tamil Nadu in the final of the competition.

Tamil Nadu defeated Baroda by six wickets in the other semi-final encounter on Thursday.

India fast bowler Umesh Yadav said that captain Virat Kohli will participate in the third Test against Australia at Ranchi.

Kohli did not take the field after suffering a shoulder injury in the second session on day one of the Test.

Even on day two, he sat out proceedings as Ajinkya Rahane took up captaincy duties in the Delhi batsman’s absence.

The BCCI had earlier said that there were “no serious concerns” about Kohli’s injury.

Umesh, who took three wickets in Australia’s first innings, mentioned that Kohli is ready to play and has been batting in the nets.

“The bandage will obviously be there because if you have a shoulder injury, you need the bandage to hold it together but he is ready to play,” said Umesh.

“He has been batting in the nets as well, so obviously he will come back.”

Despite not fielding for a long period, Kohli can bat at any position in the batting order as his injury has deemed to be external.
