MCA to honor MS Dhoni's contribution to India's World Cup victory

On the 12th anniversary of India's title clinching win, the MCA President confirmed that the seat where the World Cup winning six landed will be named after MS Dhoni

One of the greatest nights in Indian cricket history, and it's conjurer, MS Dhoni, gets another tribute. At it's Apex Council meeting on Monday, the Mumbai Cricket Association decided to honour the former Indian skipper.

"We are planning to make a small memorial at the spot where Dhoni's World Cup winning six landed. No one knows the exact seat where that shot landed, so we'll maybe block 3-4 seats in that 'tentative area' in the stands permanently for the memorial. We have a design and structure in mind, and it should be ready by the time we host the ODI World Cup in October-November. The idea was proposed by me, and seconded by Ajinkya Naik (MCA Secretary), and passed by the Apex Council. We will finalise everything soon," Amol Kale, MCA President, told TOI

"We're also planning to felicitate Dhoni by presenting a memento to him on Saturday, when MI play CSK at Wankhede," Kale added

This isn't the first instance of a seat being named/blocked after a player. Grant Elliot was also honored in a similar fashion by New Zealand Cricket. In Eden Park - Auckland, the seat where his famous six off Dale Steyn landed was named after him.
