IPL 2020: Pragyan Ojha reacts to rape threats and abuses against MS Dhoni’s daughter.

IPL 2020: People crossing the line and trolling on social media has been in headlines since Friday. Chennai Super Kings lost to the Kolkata Knight Riders two days ago in IPL 2020. Fans became agitated and they started commenting on MS Dhoni’s retirement post on Instagram. Moreover, they even crossed the line, hurling rape threats and abuses to his five years old daughter Ziva Dhoni.

With Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav was also in the receiving end of the abuses due to his slow knock against KKR. Social media has its advantages of connecting with your favourite cricketers and celebrities. However, sometimes people cross their line by hurling abuses and passing on shitty comments.

MS Dhoni and other CSK player have faced the same incident and Former India International, Pragyan Ojha feels that we need to address the issue seriously as these comments are very disturbing to read. “It’s a very important subject that we all need to address. It’s not only about a sport or about an individual it’s about the nation.

“If someone reads these kinds of things it’s very disturbing. I have a young boy, you have a daughter, we have female colleagues working with us,” he said while speaking on Sports Today. (IPL 2020)

Pragyan Ojha said that all the abuses are just non-sense. He feels that we should use the technology to communicate and not hurl abuses against some of the legends of India. He feels heartbroken that he has to come out and defend some of the legends like MS Dhoni and Sachin Tendulkar in their own country.


“We are privileged that even during the pandemic we can use technology to communicate. But people are sitting in their houses in a dark room and writing nonsense about someone who has done so much for the country. Matter of fact, about anybody. It’s nonsense, you cannot speak like that. I cannot take it. As a citizen of India, I condemn it very strongly and I will not take this nonsense.

“It’s very sad that a Pragyan Ojha is coming and speaking about MS Dhoni or a Sachin Tendulkar. These people are absolute legends. They have given us so much reason to be happy about. These are pillars of the sport and we are here to defend them in our own country, it makes me really sad,” the left-arm spinner further added. (IPL 2020)
