Revealed: Why MS Dhoni did not wear jersey with his mother’s name on it against NZ
Cricket fans across the globe received a pleasant surprise when the Indian cricketers walked on the field to take on New Zealand in the series-decider at Vizag yesterday. In a first of its kind, the Indian players wore jerseys bearing their mother’s names instead of their own. The inspirational initiative – Nayi Soch – is part of a new campaign started by Star India in collaboration with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to highlight the importance of mothers in our lives.
When Indian skipper MS Dhoni came out for the toss with the name ‘Devki’, Ravi Shastri made sure to ask him the reason behind the gesture and the Indian captain gave a fitting answer by saying:“‘Mother’s contribution’ as important as a soldier’s”

When the Indian captain came out to bat, he was sporting the same jersey but when he donned the keeping gloves, he was seen in his usual jersey with his last name printed on it. While all the other players were still wearing the jerseys with the mother’s name on it, Dhoni’s decision to not wear it during fielding raised a lot of doubts in fans’ mind.
Well, let us make it clear to you. Dhoni has not done this for the time. Actually, the Indian skipper always likes to bat in short-sleeve jersey but when it comes to fielding, he prefers the full sleeve jersey.
Here are some pictures that will clear your doubts:
Well, these pictures absolutely make it clear that why the Indian captain changed his jersey during the match.
