The deadly corona virus has pushed the whole world to halt and to postpone the scheduled events. Many countries imposed a total lock down and even restricts foreigners to enter inside their country.
Sachin Tendulkar’s contribution
In order to control the spread and reduce, the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been put India under a complete lockdown from Tuesday midnight for the next 21 days. World Health Organization(WHO) announced this deadly coronavirus as pandemic.
The lockdown seems to make life harder for daily wage workers. But, on Thursday, the government announced a package worth Rs 170,000 crore for poor and daily wage workers. Indian former cricketer Sachin Tendulkar has donated Rs 50 lack to the corona virus relief fund on March 27(Friday).
Rumors on MS Dhoni
Since then many celebrities came forward to donate and help the government in feeding the poor people. There were reports that MS Dhoni donated Rs 1 Lakh to support the 100 families of daily wage workers in Pune. But the former Indian skipper had faced a lot of criticism for donating such a low amount. His net worth is 800 crore and many people felt that he should have donated much more.
Now Sakshi Singh Dhoni, wife of MS Dhoni, has denied the rumours of MS Dhoni donating 1 Lakh to the public charitable trust in Pune. She posted a tweet to let everyone know about the false reports. “I request all media houses to stop carrying out false news at sensitive times like these ! Shame on You ! I wonder where responsible journalism has disappeared !”, she tweeted.

Dhoni’s possible return to International squad
The former Indian skipper was last seen in action against New Zealand in the ICC World Cup semifinal, a game India lost. He made himself unavailable for India’s international assignments post the WC exit and was eventually dropped from the BCCI’s list of centrally contracted players in January.
As pointed out by BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and India head coach Ravi Shastri, “Dhoni’s international future depends on his performances in IPL 2020 which comes in to consider him in T20 World Cup planned later this year in Australia”.
Due to corona virus spread BCCI postponed IPL to the mid of April where the 21 day lock down hits the date thus the execution of postponed IPL has been shifted to the end of April. BCCI would face a huge loss if IPL went down.
