‘ThankYouDhoni’ Trends On Twitter After BCCI Dropped MS Dhoni From The Annual Contract List

The Indian cricket fans were left disappointed after MS Dhoni’s name went missing from the annual contract list for India senior men players for the period October 2019- September 2020 announced by the BCCI, on Thursday.

The contract lit announced by BCCI is divided into four categories – A+ (Rs 7 crore), A (Rs 5 crore), B (Rs 3 crore) and C (Rs 1 crore). A total of 27 cricketers have been named in these four categories with the Indian skipper Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and pacer Jasprit Bumrah, being the only three cricketers who could make it to the A+ list.


Besides MS Dhoni, three other cricketers have met with the same fate as him. BCCI has also dropped  Dinesh Karthik, Khaleel Ahmed and recently retired, Ambati Rayudu from the contract list.

The announcement of the annual contract list has added more fuel to the already burning fire regarding the speculations on MS Dhoni’s future with the Indian cricket team. He played his last international match against New Zealand in the semi-final of the World Cup. It has been months since MS Dhoni played any competitive game and thus his contract was not renewed by the BCCI.

As soon as the news of Dhoni being dropped by BCCI from the annual contract came out, social media was flooded with reactions from the cricket fans. Twitterati started slamming BCCI for their decision which was ‘unfair’ according to them. Fans are taking this as an indicator of the end of his cricketing career.


‘#ThankYouDhoni’ also started trending on Twitter, where fans are paying their tributes to the cricketer and sharing some heartfelt messages for him, thanking him for his contribution to the Indian cricket.
