MS Dhoni has been in ominous form with bat in Vivo IPL 2018 with 360 runs in 10 matches. He has been hitting them big the way he used to in his early days. He has also been efficient behind the stumps, and has led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to the second spot in the points table. Now, in a promotional event for Gulf Oil on Tuesday, Dhoni revealed the name of his first crush: ”There’s an A in the word.”

“All girls’ names have an A,” came the response. So Dhoni added that ‘A’ was the third letter of the name and waited before finally revealing the name. He then asked the audience to keep it a secret from his wife. “Yes, her name is Swati. Don’t tell my wife, okay?” It transpired that Dhoni had last met the mysterious Swati in 1999 when he was in Class XII.

CSK next play Rajasthan Royals (RR) on May 11 at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur. A win will help them put a foot in the Playoffs.
