Perth, Jan.19 : Mahender Singh Dhoni is still the most eligible bachelor despite his lacklustre performance in the ongoing Test series against Australia. The latest is an Indian girl who has flown to Perth to win Dhoni'heart.
During the Test match, this girl attracted everyone's attention for carrying a placard on her back that read: "Marry Me, Dhoni". The special way of proposing the Indian skipper for ODI team, made her the most charming girl among all.
At Perth, where India cricketers registered a thumping win over the high-headed Aussies, she was sighted waving persistently whenever he was on the field at Perth.
Dhoni is touted as the most eligible bachelor along with stylish team mate Yuvraj Singh in the Indian cricket squad with numerous girl cherishing dreams of life partner.
Talking of cricketers and their lady fans, one is reminded of Abbas Ali Baig and the Test against Australia at Bombay in 1959-60.
An eager young lady was so much excited by his batting (50 and 58 in the match) that in the second innings no sooner than he reached his half century, this fan ran onto the field and planted a kiss on the rosy cheeks of Baig.
Indeed, this prompted the commentator to quip: Wish he had scored a hundred and he would have earned two kisses!
And that was none other than Vizzy, who otherwise was a dreary commentator.
