The local crowd was delighted to witness Team India’s victory but the main attraction was watching Mahendra Singh Dhoni playing at his home ground.

This entire action was captured on camera and the video was shared by the BCCI on its official Twitter handle with a caption,”Welcome to ‘Dhoniland’ for the first T20I.”
