Ranchi: Mahendra Singh DhoniIndian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's decision to field first in the fourth One Day International against Australia irked some of his hometown fans.

An unidentified person pelted a stone at Dhoni's house in the Harmu Housing Colony on Wednesday night. The fans were returning after the match was called off due to heavy rain.

During the stone pelting incident, when a window also broke, Dhoni's family were present at the Jharkhand Cricket State Association International Stadium to watch the match. (Match in pics)

"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.
