- Sakshi Singh came up with a sharp reaction to MS Dhoni’s retirement rumours
- I understand lockdown has made people mentally unstable: Sakshi Singh
- MS Dhoni has not played international cricket since World Cup 2019
MS Dhoni’s wife Sakshi Singh took to social media on Wednesday to rubbish rumours of the World Cup-winning captain’s retirement 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.

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.
Dhoni has not played international cricket since India’s defeat to New Zealand in the semi-final of the 2019 World Cup. Dhoni missed several series in the home season of 2019 and also missed the high-profile tour of New Zealand earlier this year.
