Patna, Sept 24: Cricket fans performed a special prayer ceremony on Monday ahead of the Twenty20 World Cup final to be played between India and Pakistan. Fans in Patna performed various rituals for the success of Team India.
"Today is a historic day as India takes on Pakistan in the finals of the Twenty20 World Cup finals. We have organised this prayer session for the success of Dhoni since he is going to create history today," said Jayant Kumar, a fan.
The match will take place at Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa. This is the first face-off between the two South Asian neighbours in a major final since the 1985 World Championship of Cricket in Melbourne where India romped home by eight wickets.
Earlier India had beaten Australia by 15 runs in the semi-finals on Saturday to reach the finals of the Twenty20 World Cup.
