Former Indian skipper MS Dhoni is followed by millions on social media. While he is known for his aggressive batting, his sharp wicket-keeping skills have kept the batters quite on the field.
Despite his fan following, he likes to keep his life private and he hardly interacts with fans on social networking sites. His last post on Twitter is dated January 8 earlier this year.
Despite having 8 million followers, Twitter has removed his verified badge. After the news went viral, his fans reacted angrily.
The reason behind Twitter’s action could be his unavailability on the platform. Dhoni’s Instagram and Facebook accounts are still verified. It would be interesting to see if Twitter restores MS Dhoni’s verified status.
He was last seen action during the first leg of the Indian Premier League which was postponed after the emergence of COVID-19 cases. The remaining 31 matches will be played in UAE.
