India cricket great MS Dhoni recently spoke about the reason for using No. 7 on his jersey and dismissed any superstition behind it.

The former India captain has been donning the No. 7 shirt since his international debut.

Speaking during a virtual interaction, IPL team Chennai Super Kings skipper Dhoni said he chose No. 7 for a simple reason.

“A lot of people initially thought that 7 is a lucky number for me and all of that. But I chose the number for a very simple reason. I was born on the 7th of July. So it’s the 7th day of the 7th month, that was the reason,” MS Dhoni said.
