MS Dhoni, gloves and the Number 7

It is a delight to watch MS Dhoni batting on the field, and also we adore his videos with his cute little daughter on social media. However, Dhoni has his own set of superstitions that he likes to believe for his matches. We often see Dhoni removing the straps of his gloves on the field. The fans across the globe have an idea of his fixation with the gloves. It was said that this practice is f9ollwed by the former skipper to ensure that the bat remains intact in his hands. Dhoni has his fans all over, and this superstition or fixation has helped him win several matches throughout his career. Mahi also owes his success to the number 7. Born on July 7th, he proudly sported that number on his jersey.

Virendra Sehwag 

Our very own Viru Paji was often spotted wearing a jersey without a number! This was one of the superstitions that he believed and decided to remove the number which was not getting him good luck. Earlier, he used to wear a jersey with number 44 on it. But, that number was not getting him any good luck. So very soon, he removed the number from his jersey, and in no time he started impressing all his fans with his sixes and fours on the cricket field.
