So, it’s the 7th day of the 7th month, that’s why. Rather than delving into the complexities of what number is a good number and whatnot, I decided to use my date of birth as the number. When people kept asking me about it, I used to come up with various responses “Dhoni stated this in a video posted on CSK’s official YouTube channel.
