South Eastern Railway chief public relations officer Sanjoy Ghosh said They (Jharkhand) did not have a special coach reserved for them and Dhoni travelled with his team and other co-passengers in 2AC. They had a block booking for 23 passengers including Dhoni. We had a prior information about this and so we had arranged special security when they boarded in Ranchi last night and upon their arrival this morning in Howrah.

Dhoni was employed by SER as a TTE from September 2001 till July 2004 in Kharagpur. He then quit the job and followed his passion and became one of the successful captain in India.
