Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni not too long ago took a effectively-deserved break along with his spouse Sakshi and daughter Ziva. The former India skipper headed to Shimla after the lockdown was eased in Himachal Pradesh. Many images from Dhoni, Sakshi and their 6-12 months-previous daughter Ziva’s latest trip went viral on social media platforms.

Meanwhile, CSK on Friday (June 25), took to social media to post a photo of captain MS Dhoni with a strong message for fans. In the image, Dhoni will be seen posing in a crimson t-shirt, standing subsequent to a picket plank, which reads, “PLANT TREES SAVE FORESTS”. Notably, CSK captioned the photograph as, “Planting the best ideas! Thala #WhistlePodu #Yellove”.

“What irony”: MS Dhoni draws flak for saying ‘plant trees, save forests’

Wearing a maroon t-shirt and standing in a open wooden structure, Dhoni was photographed with a wooden plank which read, “PLANT TREES SAVE FORESTS”. While sharing the image, which shows off his latest look with a handlebar moustache.

While Dhoni rarely posts photos or videos of himself, fans get to catch a glimpse of what he’s up to on the accounts of his wife, daughter, or IPL team. And though on most occasions fans are thrilled, the latest image has left a trail of mixed reactions. Many Dhoni fans were excited to see his latest image and started commenting on how good he looked with a mustache, the conversation soon shifted to the fact that his ‘save trees’ message was written on a wooden plank and he was standing by a wooden cabin. “Ironic”, one user commented.

Here are some reactions:

As the image started drawing backlash, the farmhouse property owners explained that the wood used were discarded scraps. Called ‘waste wood’, they said it was kept for bonfires during the winter.

Several of Dhoni’s fans also came to his defence, but a majority of the netizens were not convinced. Some even asked if CSK was “trolling” Dhoni by sharing such a photo of him.
