Warm-up matches usually don’t have much crowd in the stadium, but the first warm-up game between India and England at the Cricket Club of India in Mumbai is being watched by almost 20,000 fans, and the reason behind this is- it is MS Dhoni’s last match as India’s captain.
Special arrangements were made for MS Dhoni’s last match as Indian captain, as the organisers very informed well in advance by Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) that they want to give a good send off to India’s greatest limited-overs captain.
Fans filled the stadium and they were all waiting for MS Dhoni to come out and bat as India’s captain for the one last time. And much to their delight, Dhoni did come out to bat and he received a reception that he would never forget. The enthusiastic crowd present at the CCI stadium stood up to welcome their ‘captain cool’. Watch it here:
