Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni are the flag bearers of modern cricket and have umpteen fans across the globe. Recently, after India lost the 2nd T20I against Australia at Guwahati by 8 wickets, something really strange happened. Even though India lost and stones were pelted at the Australian bus which was on its way to the hotel by angry fans, there was another fan, who did something that won hearts. A specially-abled youth from Silchar, Abhijit Gotani has sketched two images of Indian Skipper Virat Kohli and former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni. It is because of such die-hard fans, that cricket still remains a popular sport after all the cheating, fixing allegations across the world affecting the game.
Apparently, the 23-year-old is a massive cricket fan and wanted to come on his own and gift the sketches to the cricketers but couldn’t do so due to personal problems. The NGO named ‘Friends of Earth’ will present the sketches to MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli on his behalf as reported by Time8.com.
What a story!

Luckily, only a glass pane broke and ironically no one was in that seat. Australian opener Aaron Finch was the first one to take to Twitter and let the whole world know about the incident. With the latest on this episode, it is believed that the culprits have finally been nabbed and action will be taken soon.
