Reason why Mahendra Singh Dhoni collects stumps after matches will leave you stunned!

New Delhi: MS Dhoni is often seen collecting a stump after every Team India win.

Irrespective of the opposition or tournament, the skipper never fails to complete this ritual.

“I have to do my post-cricket plans you see. I don’t mark the stumps that I collect. I’d watch the matches, look at the stumps and say ‘ok, this is from that match’. I have enough to keep me occupied for years,” Dhoni told reporters when asked about it.

However, there is another reason why Dhoni makes it a point to take the stump with him, reports ABP news.

Dhoni's childhood friend Kulbinder, a Nepali watchman’s son, was not only his best friend growing up but also the person who encouraged him to take up cricket.

While the wicketkeeper-batsman become a cricketing superstar, Kulbinder's stars didn't shine as brightly as his friend.

Even when Kulbinder built a small house, he did not take any financial help from Dhoni.

However, there is one thing he expected from Mahi and that is 320 cricket stumps to make a fence around his house.

Hence, Dhoni promptly collects stumps to hand it over to his dear friend.
