Team India had arrived in Ranchi, MS Dhoni’s hometown, on Wednesday ahead of their 3rd ODI against Australia that is to be played on March 8 (Friday).
Dhoni was asked to inaugurate the ‘MS Dhoni Pavilion’ at the Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) Stadium, but he refused.
JSCA Stadium secretary Debashish Chakraborty said, “We were deliberating whether to open it on 8th March. But when I asked MSD, he said: “Dada mein toh isika hissa hu. Ghar ka ladka apne hi ghar mein kya inaugurate karega? (I am a part of this ground. How can a person inaugurate something in his own home?)”
If there is one thing that makes everyone fall in love with MS Dhoni over and over again, it is that despite of having made numerous historic achievements in the field of cricket, the former Indian captain remains humble as ever.
