Ranchi, May 31: Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's wife Sakshi has revealed what will the legendary cricketer be doing once the nationwide lockdown is eased. Currently, the entire nation is under lockdown due to the novel coronavirus pandemic which also brought all the sporting activities to a grinding halt.
During a live Instagram session with MS Dhoni's Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Chennai Super Kings, Sakshi said if there isn't any cricket soon after the lockdown, they will head for a vacation in Uttarakhand.
"Of course for Mahi cricket will be a priority. But if there won't be any cricket then we are planning to visit the hills in Uttarakhand. We'll visit some remote village in the hill state and do some trekking. Mahi loves snow and trekking. So, we'll spend some time in the hills," Sakshi said.
Both Sakshi and MS Dhoni's families hail from the hill state of Uttarakhand. Talking about the uncertainty surrounding this year's IPL Sakshi said, "We are still unsure if this year's IPL will be held or not. We are just keeping our fingers crossed."
Talking about her latest tweet after she got angry with the #DhoniRetires Sakshi said she was petrified with the rumours and the reason why she deleted it.
"It was annoying and that's the reason why I tweeted it. But I deleted it because the message was conveyed," she added further.
On Wednesday (May 27) evening, Sakshi quashed rumours about the veteran wicketkeeper-batsman's retirement from international cricket and slammed the naysayers.
Dhoni's international retirement has been a subject of speculation ever since Team India's exit from last year's ICC Cricket World Cup and certain users on Twitter resurrected the rumours.
While passionate followers of the former Indian captain ardently maintained that these were just rumours, Sakshi also took note of the Twitter trend and lashed out at those spreading these rumours via social media.
"Its only rumours! I understand Lockdown has made people mentally unstable! #DhoniRetires .. Get a life ! (sic)," Sakshi wrote on Twitter.
Dhoni is spending days in self-isolation at his farmhouse in Ranchi with his family and dogs.
