Chennai: Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said that playing an ODI against England in-front of his home crowd in Ranchi will be a big occasion and the entire state is looking forward to it.

"I have never dreamt of playing for India. I think this will be a big occasion. We have a new stadium which is well equipped. We have a five-star hotel also there and an airport. So the players won't have any sort of trouble. The people of Jharkhand are looking forward to the occasion," said the Indian captain on Tuesday.
