New Delhi, July 18: The Former Indian Cricket Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was seen taking the match ball from the umpires at the end of the 3rd One-day International against England at the Ehadingley cricket ground in Leeds on Tuesday, and Twitter went on overdrive as fans began to wonder about the significance of the move.
England put up a strong all-around show to thump Team India by eight wickets in the series-deciding third and final ODI. The series loss marks this Indian team's first bilateral series defeat under Virat Kohli.
But more than the defeat, former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni taking the match ball from the umpires had the fans worried. Dhoni asked for the ball as the teams were walking back towards the pavilion.
Fans set Twitter ablaze after seeing Dhoni's action.
It was England's second consecutive win as they bounced back strongly after the first ODI loss in Nottingham before they produced a handsome win at the Lord's.
Dhoni, who announced his retirement from Tests in 2014, has played 321 ODIs and 93 T20Is.
In 321 ODIs, Dhoni has scored 10046 runs at an average of 51.25. He has 10 centuries and 67 fifties to his name.
Dhoni has amassed 1487 runs in 93 T20Is at an average of 37.17, including two half-centuries.
Recently, Dhoni added another feather to his illustrious cap as he became fourth Indian and 12th overall in ODI history to score 10,000 runs. The former India skipper achieved the milestone during second ODI against England at Lord's.
