India and Australia are currently competing in the second ODI in Nagpur. The two teams are playing a five-match ODI series where India is currently leading by 1-0.
After winning the toss, Aussie skipper Aaron Finch decided to bowl first. India couldn’t play out the full quota of overs but managed a respectable score of 250 from 48.2 overs.
The standout from the Indian batting was the skipper Virat Kohli. The ‘Run Machine of India’ scored 116 runs from 120 balls. The knock consisted 10 boundaries as the world’s best batsman showed beautiful touch and composure.
Apart from Kohli, all-rounder Vijay Shankar scored 46 from 41 balls. He was looking dangerous but unfortunately got run-out. Kohli struck a delivery from Adam Zampa, but the ball touched Zampa’s fingers and knocked the stumps. Shankar tried hard to get to his crease but was short of it.
From Australian point of view, pacer Pat Cummins bowled extremely well as he picked 4 wickets. Spinner Adam Zampa took 2 wickets as he dismissed Kedar Jadhav and MS Dhoni in consecutive deliveries.

MS Dhoni plays with a fan
However an interesting incident happened between the interval of the innings. Cricket matches have often seen fans invading the pitch to meet their favourite cricketers.
When it comes to meeting Virat Kohli or MS Dhoni, these instances have been many times. On Tuesday this incident happened again as a fan invaded the pitch to meet his favourite cricketer MS Dhoni.
However MSD decided to play with him a bit and dared him to catch him if he can. Dhoni first used Rohit Sharma as a cover and then ran away. The fan, who had a jersey with ‘Thala’ (the people from South India call MSD by this name) written o his back, followed Dhoni.
Cricketer turned commentator Aakash Chopra was heard saying, “Aare kya rahe ho. Inko koi nahi pakad paya bhaiya. Dhoni ko pakadna muskil nahi namumkin hai mere dost. (What are you doing? No one has caught him still now. Catching Dhoni isn’t difficult, it is impossible my friend).”
Dhoni finally decided to stop when reaching the crease. There the fan hugged him and Dhoni returned back the sweet gesture. The video showed why Dhoni is so favourite among the Indian cricketing fans.
