Col. Dhoni because it is not a superficial event but a sincere one. I for one will not be surprised if Dhoni ends up doing active service after he hangs his boots.”To me, today’s symbolic act depicting solidarity with the forces is more powerful than the one involving monetary donation by the BCCI,” the a senior BCCI official told IANS.Accroding to sources, Dhoni and Kohli worked closely with Nike in this whole initiative.”They have been working closely with our apparel partner Nike for the past six months with inputs in the design and proposed implementation of the initiative,” an official said.India lead the five-match ODI series 2-0 after winning the first two matches in Hyderabad and Nagpur. This is possibly Dhoni’s last match in his hometown Ranchi and India will look to clinch the series here.India have had a sensational time in one-day cricket in 2019.
