Former Indian skipper MS Dhoni recently made a surprise visit to the JSCA Stadium in Ranchi.
Speculations were being made by various media houses that Dhoni was in the ground to have a look at the pitch ahead of the third Test between India and Australia, and provide some important inputs to the Indian team and captain Virat Kohli.
But, the curator of the JSCA stadium SB Singh has revealed the real reason behind Dhoni’s visit and said that it had nothing to do with the upcoming match between the top two teams.
“When he’s here, he often visits the stadium for fitness work out and spends long time at the gym. Today was no different. He also saw the wicket and we had an informal discussion. This is not unusual for me,” SB Singh told NDTV.
“He has never intervened in pitch preparation in the last four years. Being such a great player, I always look forward to his inputs on the quality of wicket,” said Singh.
“The pitch will suit both the batsmen and bowlers and will definitely last five days,” Singh told NDTV.
