Coming back to the post shared by Barmy Army, the England cricket team’s fan group, is known for its controversial social media posts dedicated to non-England cricketers. And, the fan group’s birthday wish post for MS Dhoni’s 41st birthday did not go down well with fans. The picture is from the World Cup match against England when Dhoni got run out and was seen walking back to the dressing room. “Happy Birthday MS, some amazing battles over the years,” read the caption.

And, now we would like to talk a bit about the ICC Champions Trophy Final between India and England
Batting first in the rain-curtailed final encounter, Team India registered a total of 129 for 7 in 20 overs. In response, England managed to reach 124 for 8 in 20 overs.
Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ishant Sharma picked up two wickets each to help India complete a historic win. Moreover, this crucial triumph helped Dhoni to become the first-ever skipper to win all three ICC trophies.
In 2007, Dhoni-led India team won the inaugural edition of the T20 World Cup. Four years later, Dhoni’s men defeated Sri Lanka in the final to win the ODI World Cup in Mumbai.
The Ranchi-born wicketkeeper-batter had announced his retirement from international cricket back in 2020. He is currently leading the Chennai Super Kings franchise in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
