Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s wife Sakshi has revealed that the coupled have named their daughter Ziva.

Mrs. Dhoni tweeted: Welcome to the world beautiful Ziva! Mumma and Daddy adore you! Thanks for all of the well wishes! #BabyZiva — Sakshi Singh Dhoni (@SaakshiSRawat) February 9, 2015



The name Ziva has its roots in Hebrew, with the word meaning radiance, brilliance and light.

India’s World Cup winning captain became a father just a week before the commencement of ICC World Cup 2015 at Australia. The girl was born in Fortis Hospital in Gurgaon, and weighted a healthy 3.7 kgs at birth.

MS Dhoni is currently with the rest of his team in Australia to defend the World Cup. And he has certainly been dedicated towards his work, despite the birth of his daughter in India. When asked whether he would be travelling back to India to see his new-born girl, Dhoni said that he is only concentrating on his national duty right now.

The Indians start their defence of the World Cup on the 15th of February, taking on arch rivals Pakistan at Adelaide. The side should also be prepared for stiff challenges from the likes of South Africa and West Indies, both of whom are also in Pool B.
