MS Dhoni’s fan following is not just among the men’s cricket but it is equally prevalent among the women cricketers too. A moment of the same was captured during the Women’s Premier League 2023 on Sunday (March 5).
During the match between UP Warriorz and Gujarat Giants at the DY Patil Sports Academy, a moment was captured which reminded fans and cricket lovers of former Indian skipper MS Dhoni. Hard-hitting middle-order batter Kiran Navgire was spotted with a bat which has “MSD 07” written on it, which captured a lot of eyeballs. Pictures of the same are since then doing rounds on social media.
