India is locking horns against New Zealand in the ongoing first semi-final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 at Old Trafford in Manchester on Tuesday. The fans were earlier deprived of a contest between these two teams in the league stages as the match was washed out due to rain. At the same time, the two teams will be meeting each other in a World Cup clash after 16 long years.
The fans came to Old Trafford in large numbers to cheer the Men In Blue. In high spirits and are confident that nothing can stop Team India from taming the Kiwis, the Bharat Army - the passionate and loyal fan community of Team India - are ready in full force to turn Manchester blue.
Among them, a group of Indian fans was spotted wearing jerseys that when read together said "Kohli" on the front and "Dhoni" at the back. It caught the eye of the official Twitter handle of the International Cricket Council (ICC). They tweeted the image with a caption, "Because Dhoni's got Kohli's back."
