MS Dhoni is one of the most popular Indian cricketers, having countless fans all over the world.
He's a great sportsman and an amazing personality.
His fans have noted his peculiar ritual of collecting stumps after every victory, which has led to a lot of speculation among the masses.
There are many interesting fan-theories as to why Dhoni collects stumps. And one of the most interesting theories says that he being a zodiac Cancer makes him a hoarder.
