Dinesh Karthik urges BCCI to remove MS Dhoni jersey number 7
Dinesh Karthik, who replaced MS Dhoni on the Indian team at the time of his debut, urges BCCI to remove the number 7 jersey MS Dhoni wore after Javagal Srinath dressed it with distinction. Last year, BCCI had removed Sachin Tendulkar’s No. 10 jersey after Shardul Thakur put it on for a match.

Despite the fact that Dinesh Karthik was the biggest victim of MS Dhoni’s remarkable rise in Indian cricket, the duo shares great respect. mutual. Karthik has always been a cheeky fan of MS Dhoni and now that the latter has retired from international cricket, the KKR patron urged BCCI to retire Dhoni’s number 7 jersey for good.
The duo’s friendship dates back to the early 2000s when they clashed many times at the Duleep and Deodhar Trophy, and Bihar was unable to cross the East Zone stage, where Bengal and Odisha were the two strongest sides. However, once Dhoni did what he did in Nairobi, the chances of Karthik, a perennial underperformer on the international stage, became slim indeed. However, the Tamil Nadu man retained deep credibility that Dhoni recognized many times during his tenure as captain.
