MS Dhoni’s wife Sakshi Singh took to social media on Wednesday to rubbish rumours of the World Cup-winning captain’s retiring after #DhoniRetires was one of the top trends on Twitter.
However, Sakshi deleted the tweet soon after it went viral on the social media platform.
Sakshi Singh was seemingly furious as she reacted to the latest round of rumours surrounding what seems to be one of the most debated topics in the Indian cricket fraternity.
Sakshi did not hold back as the star cricketer’s wife said the lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic has ‘made people mentally unstable’.
“Its only rumours ! I understand Lockdown has made people mentally unstable ! #DhoniRetires .. Get a life ! (sic),” Sakshi Singh wrote on Twitter.
MS Dhoni has kept mum about his international future even as it has become a must-have in several cricket related discussions on social media. Notably, the 38-year-old had said last year to not ask questions about his future until January 2020. “January tak mat poocho,” Dhoni had said at a promotional event.
On Wednesday evening, #DhoniRetires was one of the top trends on Twitter in India. Several users added fuel to the speculations while ardent Dhoni fans maintained that the trend was a mere rumour.
‘It’s called rumours’
This is not the first time Sakshi has had to step in and refute reports of Dhoni’s retirement. In September 2019, Sakshi took to social media and rubbished rumours surrounding Dhoni’s future.
“It’s called rumours,” she had written on Twitter.
Speculations over MS Dhoni’s international future have been rife ever since the former India captain took a sabbatical from competitive cricket after the 2019 World Cup.
