While the entire nation of India feels terribly disgraced for the dreary behavior of the Cuttack crowd, MS Dhoni feels otherwise.

Addressing the post match conference, Dhoni had an extremely unique take on the highly sensitive issue. The Indian limited overs captain felt that after a certain point of time, the crowd began to hurl bottles towards the outfield just for fun. This remark from Dhoni is bound to create multiple shockwaves throughout the global cricketing fraternity.

“It’s only the first few bottles that are hurled with serious intent, after that they just do it for fun. We shouldn’t be taking such things seriously…It starts with the first bottle and then it’s more of a fun for the spectators,” Dhoni said after the match.

“When it comes to the safety of the players, I don’t think there was any serious threat. A few of the powerful people in the crowd were throwing the bottles into the ground and the umpires felt it was safe to stay in the centre or go off the ground. We didn’t play well and at times you get reactions like these,” Dhoni said, in his own calm style.

 

Dhoni further defended his views by narrating an incident from the past. “It’s only the first few bottles that are hurled with serious intent, after that they just do it for fun. We shouldn’t be taking such things seriously. I still remember we played in Vizag once and we won the game very easily and that time also a lot of bottles were thrown. It starts with the first bottle and then it’s more of a fun for the spectators,” the skipper added.

While the entire globe is busy in crucifying the Cuttack crowd for its deeds, they have found atleast one major sympathizer in the form of MS Dhoni. This will lead to a lot of tongues wagging.
