UP Warriorz batter Kiran Navgire revealed the secret behind Ms.Dhoni’s name written on her bat during the match against Gujarat Giants. Kiran Navgire had a good outing with the bat scoring 53 from 43 balls when the team was at the spot of bother.
Speaking about the reason behind Ms.Dhoni’s name in her bat, She said that the sponsored gear for WPL was delayed, so she brought old bats from the WPL and that was written during the practice session in Pune. Earlier, she stated that she started playing cricket believing she can hit long sixes like Ms.Dhoni.
“The gear from my sponsor got delayed, so I got some of my old bats from the WPL. When I practice at home in Pune, when we watch live matches or highlights, after practice we sit on the ground, knocking the bat”. Kiran Navgire said

She wrote ‘MSD 07’ on the bat, which expressed her fondness for the legendary India skipper MS.Dhoni. She further added that she was having a conversation with her friends during the practice session and they were having a conversation about the legendary Indian skipper so she wrote his name instantly.
“So, before coming to the WPL, I was sitting with my friends after a practice session, and we were discussing MS Dhoni, sir. I was speaking about it to him and instinctively wrote ‘MSD 07’ on my bat. I wrote it because whenever I talk or discuss him, I write down his name somewhere.”
