With the lady luck arriving in his life, India cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's performance would improve, former wicketkeeper Syed Kirmani hoped on Friday.
Kirmani, a member of India's 1983 World Cup winning team, said, "Even the lady in my life was very lucky for me. I hit my first century after getting married. "Dhoni has always been lucky for the Team India and now he will be performing even better than during his bachelorhood days. A lady always brings luck with her," Kirmani said on the sidelines of a promotional event in Kolkata.
Dhoni married his childhood friend Sakshi Rawat on July 4 in a hush-hush ceremony in Uttarakhand.
With the FIFA World Cup in South Africa nearing its end, Kirmani rated Spain as the favourites to lift the title.
"I was expecting Brazil and Germany to play the World Cup final. But the top footballers failed to live up to their reputation in this World Cup.
"This time the World Cup will go to a new team. I hope Spain to go all the way through. They are in the final for the first time and are playing electrifying football at this moment."
