Fantastic victory should shut up crictics: Dhoni's former coach
Ranchi: Mahendra Singh Dhoni's school coach Chanchal Bhattacharya today said the Champions Trophy triumph "should shut" the critics who created negative energy before team's departure for England.

Bihar Ranji captain Adil Hussain, under whom Dhoni had played in the Celebrity Cricket League (CCL), noted that Dhoni delivers under pressure.
Singer Rohan Deo Pathak, who sang a morale-boosting song and uploaded it on the youtube just ahead of India's semifinal tie, said "I hope fans will give a warm welcome when our hero returns."
