MS Dhoni's brother to boycott Ranchi match

Mahendra Singh Dhoni's brother Narendra will not watch the hosts take on Australia in the fourth ODI in the captain's hometown in Ranchi as he is still bitter about the family not getting enough passes for the last ODI against England played in January this year.

“We are not going to watch the match in the stadium. Yes, you can say it is a boycott. Jo main kehta hu wo main dikhakar rahunga (I will stick to it whatever I say). I will not go to watch the match even if my entire family is playing in the Indian team,” Dhoni’s brother said from Ranchi.

Narendra said his family felt insulted when the host association didn’t give enough tickets and complimentary passes to them. “I was willing to pay for the tickets but my repeated requests went unheard. My wife had to stand in a queue.

The people at the association had switched off their phones,” Narendra said. “My parents (father Pan Singh and mother Devaki Devi) and my five-year old daughter will go to watch the match” he added.
