There was an insanely ear-splitting hooting for the outgoing captain. The sounds which swept away almost throughout the match-time. Much adorable was the time when the audience was enveloped with high emotional energy ,reflecting back on the phenomenal journey of this self-built man, none other than ‘The Mahendra Singh Dhoni’.
The Brabourne Stadium was literally humming chants of ‘Dhoni. No, trust me, all his fans spread across the stadium were going gaga over the entry of this incredible man, who has relentlessly woven a game-changer story for the Indian cricket.
Dhoni has sure scripted a golden page in the history of cricket. He is as legendary a cricketer as he is human-being. At the ground, masses were raising colossal cry and hue to express their intense dismay over his decision to voluntarily retire from his captaincy position. Well, this speaks a lot about the immense reverence and compassion which not only all Indians but people across the globe shower on him. He got exactly what he was worth. And this is enough said.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni fans were elevated to the seventh sky when he came out to provide a flawless finish to the India A innings against England XI, smashing an unbeaten 68 off 40 deliveries.
Although there wasn’t any dearth of on-ground-entertainment, a spectator jumped the 10-feet fencing, dodged the security cover in the North Stand fence, only to touch the feet of Dhoni, who was batting, to up the fanatic moment history which had gripped the stadium and the spectators.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni and partner Hardik Pandya were chatting in between overs. It was only after Dhoni insisted that the person jumped over the wicket to touch the double World Cup-winning skipper’s feet.
If there was even one security man less, I am sure, this man has built such a humungous fan-following, that the whole stadium would have crashed the ground to have a rendezvous with this stellar personality cum seasoned cricketer.
We love you to the core, Dhoni!
