IND vs AUS 2nd ODI: Former Australia pacer Mitchell Johnson took to his official Instagram handle on Saturday to share details about his hilarious encounter with an ardent cricket fan. The 41-year-old revealed that the young fan requested him to take a selfie on his phone, upon meeting the legendary pace at the airport.
