India vs Australia 2019: Former India captain MS Dhoni still enjoys a lot of attention wherever he travels. The 37-year-old reached Vizag for the first T20I and got a rousing reception on reaching Vizag. It is not uncommon to see Dhoni receive such receptions. In New Zealand, he got a standing ovation every time he walked into the middle. Once Dhoni came outside the airport exit gate, fans were standing outside to get a glimpse of their hero. Once they spotted him, the fans started shouting his name and the security had to get into action soon to keep the mob under control.

Meanwhile, a lot is expected from the veteran after he hit a purple patch Down Under where he bagged the Man of the Series in the ODI series against hosts Australia. Dhoni has shown that he is sharper than ever with the gloves and his decision-making is undoubtedly one of the best in the business. There were question marks over Dhoni’s participation in the World Cup after his England tour where he found it hard to score at a brisk rate. But after the Australia series, all that has changed and he seems to have found a space in the scheme of things.
With the first T20I on 24th February, the rest of the squad is expected to reach Vizag today. The Men in Blue would look to finalise a squad for the World Cup as this is their last opportunity to do so. Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah would be making a return to the squad after rest.
