Ranchi: As Team India arrived in the city alongside their English opponents for the third one-day international on Wednesday, cricket fanatics have been turning up in large numbers to catch a glimpse of their favorite star. While Team India began their practice session at Ranchi stadium on Thursday, fans in large numbers queued outside the venue to meet the stars. The police, in their bid to control the crowd, resorted to lathicharge.
The cricket fans in Ranchi had also created a ruckus yesterday, when the players from both teams had arrived in the city. A mob of over 1,000 individuals had surrounded Hotel Radisson Blue to get a glimpse of MS Dhoni and other cricket stars on Wednesday.
The mob of cricket fanatics, queued outside the Ranchi stadium, was controlled after a police lathicharge as Team India was unable to enter the stadium for their scheduled practice session.
The local hero, MS Dhoni, left for his home directly from the airport whereas other team members were taken to the Hotel Radisson Blue. The Indian skipper also hosted a party in the evening for Team India, which lasted for almost four hours on Wednesday.
