The fans were returning after the One-Day International (ODI) was called off due to heavy rain.

During the stone pelting incident, when a window also broke, Dhoni's family were present at the JSCA International Stadium to watch the match.

"We had come to watch Dhoni and Virat Kholi bat but India could not bat due to rain. We are disappointed," said Ronit.

Echoing his view, Amrit Raj said: "We spent money to watch our country's sensations Dhoni, Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan. We lost, both, money and an interesting match due to rain. We do not know when another match will again take place in Ranchi."

Dhoni's under-construction house was also attacked in 2007 when India performed poorly in a tournament. Angry fans then demolished an under-construction wall of the house.

The fourth ODI was crucial for India as it is trailing the series 1-2.

Foot-in-mouth disease among humans

The foot-and-mouth disease afflicts cows, buffaloes and sheep and causes them to break out in acute fever and blisters and could be fatal. Whereas the foot-in-mouth disease is known to attack us humans as we often shoot off our mouths, resulting in embarrassment. One may think that the tendency to say the wrong thing, at the wrong time, takes some doing, but actually it is a common malady and afflicts us all, at some time or the other. Writes Pallavi Singh.
