New Delhi [India]: A complaint was registered on Sunday by the Delhi Police after former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni lost his mobile phone at a five star hotel in Delhi’s Dwarka. The incident took place when the Welcome Hotel, in which the Jharkhand cricket team was staying to play the Vijay Hazare Trophy semi-final against Bengal, caught fire. Dhoni and the team were able to escape unhurt. Following the incident, match referee Sanjay Verma postponed and rescheduled the match on Saturday.

Bengal completed a 41-run win over Jharkhand in the second semi-final of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2016-17 at the Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi. With this win, Bengal have qualified for the final of the tournament, where they will face Tamil Nadu at the same venue on Monday. Bengal had earlier scored 329 for 4 in 50 overs. Openers Shreevats Goswami and Abhimanyu Eashwaran scored 101 apiece. They put up a 198-run stand, which set up the platform for the middle-order. Manoj Tiwary then continued the momentum, scoring an unbeaten 49-ball 75 to ensure Bengal put up a mammoth total on the board.

Dhoni, who was the best performer for his side scoring 70 off 62 balls with four sixes, was understandably upset after his team bowled poorly and also lost wickets in a heap after he was dismissed. Jharkhand’s last 6 wickets fell for 38 runs. ”Yes, Dhoni left in a private car separately after the match. The rest of the Jharkhand boys left by team bus,” a DDCA official said. It is not new for star players to commute separately from the team and a lot of India players do that.
