Amid the COVID-19 crisis, former Indian captain MS Dhoni has reportedly come forward to help the families of daily wage workers in Pune.

Considering the rapidly increasing Coronavirus cases in India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday (March 24) announced that the country will be under complete lockdown for the next 21 days.

The lockdown has massively affected the daily wage workers and thus Dhoni reportedly donated Rs 1 lakh via crowdfunding website Ketto to the Mukul Madhav Foundation, public charitable trust in Pune.

But considering Dhoni’s stature, people felt it was a very little amount that the veteran wicketkeeper contributed and hence started trolling him on social media.  

Meanwhile, senior Sports Editor Vikrant Gupta has revealed the real reason for Dhoni donating just 1 Lakh for the noble cause.

Taking to Twitter, Vikrant slammed the trolls before clearing that the NGO needed only that much money to reach their goal.

“Such a shame people are trolling @msdhoni for the 1 lakh donation to an NGO. The NGO wanted to raise 12.50 lakh and MSD added the amount they needed. He isn’t the kind of person who would tom-tom about such things. For all you know he might hv donated more somewhere else already,” his tweet read.
