World number four batsman MS Dhoni is out for a noble cause - chalking out details to organise a charity cricket match between film stars and cricket icons.
The stylish cricket has got assurance from Jharkhand Chief Minister Madhu Koda in this regard.
"I will extend all possible help," Koda told the India wicketkeeper-batsman when he called on the chief minister.
Dhoni said several top cricketers have agreed to support him for the noble cause.
Finalisation of the date could take some time as both actors and cricketers go through busy schedules, Dhoni said after calling on the chief minister.
Dhoni said he was trying his best for the charity tie and the proceeds raised from it would go to the chief minister's relief fund which would be spent on helping the weaker society.
The 25-year old stumper, who took away the man of the series award in the recently concluded one-day international series against Bangladesh, gained a spot on Moday to be fourth in the latest LG-ICC player rankings for ODI batsmen.
The aggressive wicketkeeper-batsman is behind Australia's Mike Hussey, England's Kevin Pietersen and Australian skipper Ricky Ponting.
