Jharkhand fans want Dhoni to return in 22 yards
The non-inclusion of wicketkeeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the recent contract of BCCI has angered his great fan who follows him Jharkhand .
Expressing his anger at the Facebook banker, Abhimanyu Chakraborty said: People are jealous of Mahi and some conspire against him. Chakraborty said Mahi is one of the best Cricket players in India.
Another fan, Hemesh Sadasivan, said: Come back Dhoni and show the world that you are the best player Team India Have you ever had.
Sahim Alam said: BCCI has made a wrong decision by not giving him the contract, adding that Ranchi Rambo has the power to bring another trophy to the country.
Sunny Singh said: Mahi bhai, please come back at least for the T20 World Cup later this year.
Ajsu-P chief and Silli MLA Sudesh Mahato, a fan and close friend of Dhoni, talking to TOI on Friday said: Keeping Dhoni’s stature in mind, BCCI should have renewed his contract till he announced his retirement. Mahato added Mahi is the icon of Jharkhand and like every other Jharkhand i, he too wished to see Dhoni play the coming T20 World Cup.
Meanwhile, their fans in Jamshedpur are not happy with the decision of BCCI. Rakesh Prasad, a store owner in the Sakchi market in the heart of Steel City, often met Mahi when he was a long-haired cricketer and used to come to Jamshedpur to practice or play games at Keenan Stadium.
Prasad said that Mahi is a thorough gentleman and that he had no ego, and that he often frequented his tent during his visit to the city. He remembered how they both used to argue Cricket in length only to be interrupted by other customers visiting your store.
Prasad even distributed sweets when Mahi got a place in Team India . Prasad said Dhoni can still play a lot of Cricket in the coming days.
Budding Cricket er Ramesh Yadav said Mahi led Team India and won the T20 World Cup in 2007 and 2011 ICC World Cup. Yadav said: "Dhoni has brought Jharkhand on the world map and so I am proud of him."
Yadav said: We want to see Mahi play, and added that if he can play IPL, why not T20?
Notably, Dhoni was spotted practicing Cricket at JSCA stadium at Dhurwa in Ranchi. He also gave tips to the Jharkhand Ranji team.
