Wasim Jaffer remembered Dhoni

Seeing this very moving light, former Indian opener Wasim Jaffer remembered what Captain Cool Dhoni (MS Dhoni) had told him years ago. Jaffer wrote: “Even though there are few or no spectators on the pitch, there can be nothing more encouraging than playing for India.
