Indian cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the man every Indian cricket fan is pining their hopes on at this point. India lost wickets against New Zealand in quick succession. Dhoni, who was lined up at number 7, is now the only hope for India’s chances at reaching the finals.
Amidst all this, an image of Dhoni from the dressing room has gone viral. In it, Dhoni appears to be praying into or kissing the bat he will be playing with. Soon, netizens donned their funny cap and brought some comic relief in the otherwise tensed match.
MS Dhoni is removing edges of bat,
na edge hogi, na edge lagegi 😎

Fans were even reminded of the IPL match where Dhoni had done a similar gesture on the field.
