However, Sakshi Singh Dhoni jumped the gum and slammed all the haters. He tweeted “Its only rumors! I understand Lockdown has made people mentally unstable! #DhoniRetires .. Get a life! ”
However, Sakshi deleted the tweet when it went viral. She has finally opened about the incident to Rupha Ramani, the famous sports presenter. She revealed that a close friend of the couple informed her about the trend and she decided to put an end to the rumor.
