MS Dhoni, the former skipper of the Indian cricket team, was lately in news but for all the wrong reasons. Reports were doing rounds that Mahi has donated Rs. 1 lakh to Mukul Madhav Foundation, Pune, which is an NGO that will support nearly 100 families for the next 14 days during the lockdown. Many people were criticising Dhoni for donating such a small amount despite the fact that he is one of the richest cricketers of India.
Now, Dhoni’s wife Sakshi Dhoni has broken her silence on this matter and slammed all the media houses for spreading fake news. Sakshi took to the micro-blogging site Twitter and wrote,
“I request all media houses to stop carrying out false news at sensitive times like these! Shame on You! I wonder where responsible journalism has disappeared!”

There is no denying the fact that these are sensitive times as coronavirus has already taken lives of more than 24,000 people and over 5.5 lakh people have been found infected with it worldwide. If we talk about India only, over 700 people have been found infected while 17 have lost their lives.
MS Dhoni played last for India in the semi-final of ICC World Cup 2019 in which India got defeated by New Zealand. His fans were hoping to see him back in action in IPL 2020 which was slated to start from March 29 but got postponed till April 15 due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The return of MS Dhoni in the Indian team will be difficult now as he may have claimed the berth in the Indian squad for T20 World Cup 2020 by performing well in IPL but the chances of IPL 2020 taking place are very bleak now. However, BCCI hasn’t made any official announcement regarding it.
