- Kohli posted a tweet on Twitter about a great inning of MS Dhoni from 2016 T20 world cup.
- Fans took it as Kohli is praising for Dhoni as Dhoni may have reveled to Kohli about his prolonged Retirement talks.
- CKS Twitter handle comes in its own way to make fans more confused by twitting a dialogue of GOT, i.e. not 7oday
Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli on his twitter account posted about MS Dhoni yesterday, in which he recalled MS Dhoni’s marvelous innings in the T20 World Cup in 2016, led to an avalanche of rumors bearing down on users on various social media platforms.
The rumor mills went into overdrive regarding the possibility of the former India captain calling a press conference on Thursday to announce his retirement. While chief selector MSK Prasad and Sakshi Dhoni made it abundantly clear that nothing of the sort was happening, Chennai Super Kings’ official Twitter handle found a novel way to tackle the matter.
With MS Dhoni’s retirement talk gaining momentum of Twitter, CSK took a leaf of out Game of Thrones character Arya Stark’s book to quell the speculation. Despite not making direct mention of Dhoni, CSK tweeted: “Not 7oday” — the number seven denoting MS Dhoni’s jersey number.

While some fans were left scratching their heads, others were quick to appreciate CSK’s creative genius.

Earlier on Thursday, MSK Prasad also spoke about MS Dhoni’s retirement.
“No update on MS Dhoni’s retirement, the news is incorrect,” MSK Prasad told media after announcing India’s Test squad for the three-match series against South Africa.
Dhoni took a sabbatical from cricket after India’s 50-over World Cup campaign ended in the semi-finals.
