Dhoni Finally Reveals Why He Collects Stumps After Every Victory: MS Dhoni has a habit of collecting a stump to commemorate every victory. Though we all have our versions for why he does it, we never knew the answer. Until now.
There have been stories behind the act, ranging from the astrological to the completely unreal. Some say, Dhoni’s zodiac sign being Cancer gives him the personality trait of being a habitual hoarder.
In a recent interview with BCCI.tv, Dhoni explained the idea behind collecting the stumps as memorabilia. He said, “That’s my retirement plan. The good thing is that I do collect a lot of stumps but the bad one is I don’t put a mark as to which match they were from. So, after I retire I’ll watch the videos of all my matches, look closely at the sponsors logos on the stumps and figure out which match a stump belongs to. It will be my post-cricket pass time!”
