A video has surfaced on the internet which features a Tweet under the name of cricketer MS Dhoni. The Tweet read: “I know all India disappointed with us after this semi and trolling about my retirement. But this is not the right time to leave my team like this. Fans, no need to worry, I will play 2020 ICC T20 World Cup in Aus. Keep Supporting”.
At the time of filing this report, the above post was shared by over 12,000 Facebook users.
NewsMobile fact-checked the above video and found it to be FAKE.
When we scanned through the verified Twitter handle of MS Dhoni, we found that Dhoni lasted Tweeted on May 6th, much before India’s exit from the 2019 World Cup.

The tweet was not about MS Dhoni’s future plans.
Hence, the above information proves that MS Dhoni didn’t confirm that he will play the T20 World Cup in 2020.
