Needless to say that Mahendra Singh Dhoni is one of the most recognisable faces of the IPL. Reports said that the Indian limited overs captain, MS Dhoni had signed a big bat endorsement deal with Spartan in 2013. Cameron Merchant, the cricket manager at the Spartan Sports, said, Dhoni is more than welcome to use a coloured bat in IPL as he is such a role model, influential cricketer and kids look up to him. So it is likely that MS Dhoni can use a colored bat in the upcoming edition of IPL. The coloured bat is allowed in T20 franchise competitions around the world.
