Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s popularity has diminished not a whit even after he quit the limited overs captaincy. A devoted fan on Tuesday breached security and ran into the Brabourne Stadium ground here to touch the iconic wicketkeeper-batsman’s feet during a warm-up match against England.
As Dhoni officiated in his farewell warm-up match as skipper of India A, a man jumped the 10-feet fencing and, dodging the North Stand security, touched the feet of ‘Captain Cool’ who calmly shook hands with the interloper before security personnel escorted him off the ground.
India A posted 304-5 against England with Dhoni scoring 68 runs off 40 balls. He also scored 23 runs in the last over by slamming two sixes and two boundaries.
