For Indian cricket fans, the shirt number 7 bears special significance. It is the number worn by the famous skipper MS Dhoni on the pitch. Dhoni was never seen without the number 7 on his back, whether he was representing India or his franchise, the Chennai Super Kings. Although he has retired from international cricket. At a recent occasion, the athlete revealed his link to the number.
That is the time or day my parents determined I would arrive on Earth. I was born on July 7th. So July is the seventh month. 81 was the year, therefore 8-1 equals 7. So it was really easy for me to just go out,” Dhoni stated during a promotional event.
