10 Indian cricketers and their secret social media passwords
1.MS Dhoni- ShowSomeSpark
Mahendra Singh Dhoni is not a person who speaks a lot. But when he does, the world sits up and takes notice of every word he says. In the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League(IPL), MS Dhoni and the Chennai Super Kings endured a disastrous campaign.
The ‘yellow brigade’ failed to qualify for the playoffs for the first time and Dhoni struggled to get going with the bat as well. The CSK skipper was also criticized for backing ageing non-performers like Kedar Jadhav and not providing opportunities to youngsters like Ruturaj Gaikwad and Narayan Jagadeesan in the playing XI.
Dhoni revealed that the youngsters did not show enough SPARK to be considered for selection. However, when finally provided with the opportunity, Gaikwad scored three consecutive half centuries in the last three league matches of the Chennai side, making many wonder whether Dhoni had committed a blunder by not backing people who actually showed the SPARK. So, ShowSomeSpark as a password would suit perfectly for the enigmatic legend of Indian cricket.
