Dhoni once again showed his antics behind the stumps on Sunday when he dismissed New Zealand opener Tim Siefert to get the breakthrough for India in the match.
The cricket fans all across the world were left puzzled after the official Twitter handle of the International Cricket Council (ICC) posted a flurry of lyrical tweets dedicated to former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who appeared in his 300th T20 game during the third match against New Zealand on Sunday.
Undoubtedly, the Indian wicketkeeper-batsman and one of the best finishers in the world has a crazy fan following. But it seems that Dhoni has got a new diehard fan in the form of the world’s cricket governing body.
When Dhoni headed into his record T20 match, the ICC’s official Twitter handle recreated the lyrics of John Lennon classic ‘Imagine’ and made a series of tweets on the former Indian skipper.
The array of tweets left social media followers in shock with many posting that either the ICC ‘s account has been hacked or it has been turned into the Indian veteran’s fan club.
It is not the first time that the ICC has showcased their love for Dhoni.
A few days back, a Japanese multimedia artist, named Yoko Ono, asked the Twitter for some advice which will help him shine and it was the ICC who were prompt to reply.
“Never leave your crease with MS Dhoni behind the stumps!” the global cricket governing body had replied.
Dhoni, who has the most number of stumping to his name in international cricket with 191, once again showed his antics behind the stumps on Sunday when he dismissed New Zealand opener Tim Siefert to get the breakthrough for India in the match.
Interestingly, the 37-year-old took just 0.099 seconds to rattle Seifert’s stumps off Kuldeep Yadav’s delivery during the third T20I at Seddon Park in Hamilton.
India, however, eventually slumped to a narrow four-run defeat in that match to hand New Zealand a 1-2 win in the three-match series.
