Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's wife Sakshi has tweeted an image of their new-born daughter Ziva.

Sakshi holding her daughter's tiny hand posted the picture and simply captioned: "Bundle of Joy!!"

It's just a picture of a hand but nonetheless, this is the first image of her released by the family. 

Ziva (which means brightness in Hebrew) was born on February 6 at a private hospital in Gurgaon but the superstar father was not present at the time.

The baby was due in March but the delivery came almost a month earlier.

The Indian captain is currently in Australia for the ongoing World Cup tournament where his team has had a good start in the tournament, winning all their three matches against old foes Pakistan, mighty South Africa and minnows United Arab Emirates.

Dhoni is preparing to take on West Indies on Friday in the World Cup.
