The atmosphere at the CCI stadium in Mumbai was electrifying on Tuesday as fans poured around in the stadium to watch MS Dhoni lead the Indian side for one last time against England.
And when Dhoni walked out on to the pitch to bat today in the first warm-up game, there was a thunderous roar. The crowd went berserk as chants of ‘Dhoni’ filled the air.
Such was the craziness around the Brabourne stadium that at one point of time a man ran out onto the pitch to touch Dhoni’s feet. Going by his cool temperament, Mahi, as Dhoni is fondly known, was batting with Hardik Pandya and even offered to shake hands with his fan. The fan also fell on his feet, but moments later, the security officials although reacting late, ushered the intruder off the field.
India A scored a mammoth 304/4 as Dhoni plucked 23 in the final over from Chris Woakes to finish unbeaten on 68 off 40 balls. Watch the video here posted by Indian Cricket Team on Facebook:
