MS Dhoni was the biggest star attraction for the Delhi spectators at the Feroz Shah Kotla. The most common sight just outside the stadium on Friday night was hundreds of fans wearing the Pune team’s jersey.
Fans were wearing Number 7 jersey with Dhoni written over it. Minutes before the match when Dhoni came out for warm-up, he was greeted with a loud cheer and few of them started to shout at the top of their voices.
Later, the entire stadium erupted in joyous mood when he came out to bat. The entire stadium started to chant his name. The atmosphere was electric and so was Dhoni’s presence on the crease.
Unfortunately, he got run out while stealing a single, which was again a rare sight. Rising Pune Supergiants could’t cross the line, but he left a big impression. There were hordes of people trying to take a selfie with Dhoni.
Right from dressing room attendants, security personals to state association officials – everyone wanted to capture a glimpse of Dhoni. It was quite clear that there was one Dhoni on the pitch and thousands in the stands!
