A flurry of speculations emerged about Dhoni's retirement after India skipper Virat Kohli shared

Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli with MS Dhoni. The picture is a memory from the 2016 T20 World Cup match against Australia and called the match an unforgettable and special night where MS Dhoni made him run like a fitness test.

The appreciation tweet, within no time, was linked to Dhoni's future and speculation started that the veteran wicketkeeper-batsman would be making an announcement by evening.

Given the magnitude of the queries regarding Dhoni since morning, his wife Sakshi Dhoni took to her social media handles to clear the air.

After returning from England following Team India's exit in World Cup semi-final, Dhoni took a couple of months break and went to serve the Indian Army in Jammu and Kashmir. But it ended up creating a virtual buzz around whether Dhoni had informed the Indian skipper about his future plans.

Consequently, he could not make it to the ODI or the T20I squads for the just-concluded tour of West Indies. "No update on MS Dhoni's retirement, the news is incorrect", ANI quoted Prasad as saying.

In what should be the most authentic response to the rumours that MS Dhoni would be retiring from global cricket on Thursday, the former Indian skipper's wife Sakshi posted just three words on her Twitter handle to put an end to all conjectures. "I don't think they are true", was Chairman of Selectors MSK Prasad's response when the senior player's name cropped up while he was addressing a press conference to announce India's Test squad for the home series against South Africa.

Meanwhile, Team India's series against South Africa will start with the T20I leg on September 15 in Dharamsala. India won all three - T20, ODI and Tests - comfortably.
