A few days ago, Ranchi police had contacted Dhoni's family and asked them to inform about the cricketer's bike trips so that they could provide security to him. But speaking ahead of the Champions League matches in Ranchi, Dhoni said he is not worried to venture out on the streets without police protection.
"Security was not necessary as the roads were empty. Ranchi is my home and I feel secure anytime here," was Dhoni's reply at a press conference on Wednesday (September 18).
"Carcades will only unnecessarily disturb people and police," he added.
Dhoni and his Chennai Super Kings team-mates are in Ranchi for CLT20. They will be playing their first match at JSCA International Stadium against South Africa's Titans on Sunday. This will be Dhoni's first ever T20 game in front of his home crowd.
"I have been in Ranchi for quite some time now, but the team had come a few days back. Some of the members joined yesterday, while the rest have joined today (Wednesday)," he said.
Dhoni will be seen in action after a few months of break from cricket.
