India may be getting dragged towards a draw by the Aussies in Ranchi but the stadium got their reason to cheer right after Tea on Day 5 of the third Test on Monday.
Local boy Mahendra Singh Dhoni, no more a Test cricketer, came out to the stadium to support the Indian team. Spotted in the stands by the broadcasters, MS waved at the fans, and when the footage was played on the giant screens in the stadium, there were collective cheers all around.
Garnering a loud cheer from the crowd, the former Indian captain responded by waving a hand to his fans. Surely, the inaugural Test match in Ranchi would haven’t been complete without him.
Dhoni had retired from Test cricket 2014, handing over the reins to Virat Kohli, who has since had a record-breaking run as captain and batsman.
