Ranchi: The people of Ranchi are all set to witness their favourite son Mahendra Singh Dhoni lead the national cricket team after International Cricket Council gave the green light to the newly constructed stadium where the ODI between India and England will be held on January 19.

"The ICC has given the green signal to hold the ODI four days ago - the last time Jharkhand had hosted an ODI was in 2006 against England," JSCA supremo Amitabh Choudhary told a press conference here.

"And there is every possibility of Dhoni leading Team India on his home soil for the first time on January 19.
