MS Dhoni's wife Sakshi has once again rubbished the rumours of the veteran wicketkeeper-batsman's retirement from international cricket.

On Wednesday evening, certain users on Twitter started to spread rumours of Dhoni's retirement with hashtag #DhoniRetires. However, those following the former Indian captain ardently maintained that these were false rumours.

Sakshi also took note of the Twitter trend and lashed out at those spreading these rumours.

"Its only rumours ! I understand Lockdown has made people mentally unstable ! #DhoniRetires .. Get a life ! (sic)," Sakshi wrote on Twitter.

However, just a few minutes after posting the tweet, she deleted it.

This is not the first time Sakshi has had to step in and refute reports of Dhoni's retirement. In September last year, she had taken to social media and rubbished rumours surrounding Dhoni's future.

"It's called rumours," Sakshi had tweeted.

Speculations over Dhoni's retirement have been in the news ever since the 2019 World Cup where the veteran wicketkeeper-batsman played his last game against New Zealand in the semi-final which India lost.

Dhoni's return to professional cricket was one of main highlights of the 2020 season of the Indian Premier League. It was believed that his performance in IPL 13 would decide his fate as far as Team India is concerned.

However, with IPL 13 currently suspended indefinitely and T20 World Cup looking all set to be postponed due to Covid-19 pandemic, chances of him donning the Indian jersey again seems bleak.
