Former India captain MS Dhoni’s every move becomes news. The 37-year-old has not been picked for the South Africa series and rumours once again started doing the rounds, whether Dhoni will retire or continue. Amid all of this, India captain Virat Kohli came up with a tweet where he mentioned, “Special Night”, that seems to have sparked the rumours again as netizens thought Dhoni might be calling time on his illustrious career. Now, BCCI chief selector MSK Prasad and Dhoni’s wife Sakshi have clarified it and called it a rumour. Rajasthan Royals strangely also created a fan poll where they asked fans what would Dhoni do. The four options that the inaugural IPL champions put include Dhoni’s return to Test cricket, international retirement, joining the army or he is looking forward to becoming a PM.
Here is how fans reacted to the poll:
