Pundits have in recent times not missed an opportunity to criticise MS Dhoni and even spoken about how he needs to make way for younger players looking at the future, but fans still swear by him and that was evident on Wednesday once again at the PCA Stadium in Mohali as a fan walked in to touch Mahi’s feet.

The Indian cricket team posted the story on Instagram and it read: “Meanwhile in Mohali #TeamIndia #INDvSL.”

Earlier in the day, Sri Lanka put India into bat, and Rohit Sharma batted through the innings to score an unbeaten 208 which included 13 boundaries and 12 sixes as India piled on the misery on the visitors, setting them a mammoth 393 runs to win. Sri Lanka crumbled under pressure as they fell well short of finish line.

The Mumbaikar who has a knack of staying put once he gets in, said after the match, “I was telling myself, if I have got this far, I am not going to get out. I was only looking to keep my shape and hit through the line. It was the same thing I did in my first two 200s. I started off pretty slow then too.”

In attendance was his wife Ritika who was understandably over the moon with the performance of her better half. In the post-match presentation ceremony, Rohit who was rightfully named player of the match dedicated his innings to his wife.
