Team India’s limited overs captain, MS Dhoni, while launching the ticket sales of the inaugural edition of Masters Champions League (MCL) presented himself as a fan rather than a cricketer.
“Today I am in front of you not as a cricketer, but as a cricket fan. I have come here to tell you that our favourite cricketers are coming back to play on the field. Every fan will say one thing for sure we want sixer,” said Dhoni in a special video message.
