The fund collected through the auction of the seats where the ball landed after MS Dhoni’s iconic six will be used as scholarships for emerging players.

The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) has decided to auction the seats at the Wankhede Stadium on which the ball landed after legendary India captain MS Dhoni struck the 2011 ODI World Cup winning six against Sri Lanka.

In April this year, MCA had invited Dhoni to inaugurate a victory memorial built at the site of that iconic six. Five chairs will be removed from the pavilion for this.

The fund collected from the auction will serve as scholarships to the emerging players, MCA said.

“To eternalize the glory of this moment, the two seats where the ball landed at the Wankhede Stadium after MS Dhoni struck the ICC World Cup 2011 winning six will be auctioned by the MCA,” the cricket association posted on X (formerly Twitter) on Thursday.

“The funds collected from this auction will be utilised to provide scholarships to emerging players,” it added.
